Designing and Facilitating Effective Discussions
Friday, January 21 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Discussions can engage learners in deeper thinking, foster community, and promote student motivation. In this workshop, you will develop a toolbox to design classroom discussions and facilitate learning communities. We will explore approaches, build skills, and consider practical applications for synchronous discussions. Questions addressed may include:
- What are your goals for discussion?
- How can discussions be structured and adapted for different contexts?
- How can you get all students participating and keep things on track?
- And, how do you assess what students are learning?
Through hands-on experiences, you will leave with a set of strategies for creating effective, inclusive discussions that support a collaborative learning environment.
