Facilitating Discussion in Humanities and Social Science (Intended for Graduate Students)

Friday, October 8th; 2:00pm - 3:15pm
ND Room LaFortune Student Center

Julian Chike and Haley Dutmer, Graduate Associates, ND Learning | Kaneb Center for Teaching Excellence

Classroom discussion can make or break a course. Done well, it’s the linchpin for meaningful classroom engagement; done poorly, even the best-planned course material can fall flat. In this workshop, participants will explore strategies for sparking effective discussions and generating inclusive student interactions. We will also brainstorm how to turn those strategies into concrete action in social sciences and humanities classrooms by practicing a range of discussion techniques.
