Facilitating Discussions 

September 2 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

If dialogue is essential to a participatory democracy, then college classes play an important role in teaching and practicing respectful and productive discussion. In this workshop, we’ll consider the purposes of discussion before moving to the more practical: strategies for engaging students in dialogue with each other. We’ll identify types of effective discussion questions and a variety of facilitation techniques for involving students in conversation. During the session, you’ll have time to plan for an upcoming class discussion, using the approaches shared in the workshop.

Facilitated by Jen Garrett-Ostermiller, CTL Faculty Development Specialist
