Discussion is an incredible opportunity for students to practice argumentation, learn about varying viewpoints, and discover the skills and languages common to a field or discipline. However, class discussion can also be fraught with challenges for both ourselves and our students, including everything from scary silences to out-and-out incivility. This workshop will introduce faculty and instructional staff to learning-centered principles and strategies that encourage deeper, more productive, and more inclusive classroom and online discussions.
This workshop is suitable for all faculty and instructional staff who wish to include learner-centered discussion pedagogies in their classes.
