Teachers’ Lounge: Cultivating honesty and risk in class discussion

March 1, 2017
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Register here.

Continuing the ongoing exploration of inclusive teaching techniques and challenges at CTL, Spring 2017 Teachers Lounges consider approaches to class discussion that genuinely engage a diverse range of students. In this session we consider models for priming forthright conversation and licensing intellectual risk-taking during class discussions. What does educational literature suggest — and what do we see really working here at Columbia?
Any current or future instructor at Columbia is welcome to join. Participants are welcome to drop by for individual sessions or the whole series. There is no registration for Teachers’ Lounge — if you are interested in the topic and available, just drop by! Pizza is available for all participants.
