Role Play as a Teaching Technique

May 15 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

Free

As a supplement to the previous day’s event, “Cuts: Responding to Student Climate Concerns,” this workshop will expand on the use of role play particularly in a required Diversity 1 course.

“Role playing is a learning structure that allows students to immediately apply content as they are put in the role of a decision maker who must make a decision regarding a policy, resource allocation, or some other outcome.” —Carleton College.

This mini-workshop provides a starter for exploring the fundamentals of role play in the university classroom. The presenter will also reflect on the benefits and tensions that emerged during a lesson when students used problem solving to role play issues of social justice and equity.

Facilitated by Cynthia Reyes, Ph. D., Department of Education
