Engaging Students in Discussion (For Faculty)

August 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Register here.

“How do I get students to engage with each other in class discussions? How can I keep the conversation going between class sessions? How can I create a space in which my students feel comfortable sharing?”

In this workshop, we will address these questions by exploring a four-step planning process as well as strategies to ensure that students engage in and learn from discussions and leave with clear takeaways. With intentional planning and facilitation, you  can maximize student learning from online classroom conversations.

Before the session, we ask that registered participants review the CTL’s Online Resource: Learning Through Synchronous and Asynchronous Discussion, which informs the workshop activities.
