Teaching through Discussion

Instructors often rely on discussions to gauge students’ understanding, curiosities, and challenges in the classroom. This workshop will explore how to teach through discussion by focusing on the following questions: How can we prioritize goals for a discussion? How can we make our expectations transparent to students and prepare them for discussion? And how can we assess whether or not our goals for discussion were met? Register.
