Teachers’ Lounge: 50 ways to hold discussion

February 15, 2017
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Butler Library Room 212

Register here.

Continuing the 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 may not get to all 50 techniques, but we will look at a kaleidoscope of tactics promoted by Stephen Brookfield and Stephen Preskill in Discussion as a Way of Teaching — and add any more we can think of.
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.
