This workshop is full.  Please look for more workshops this fall!

It is somewhere between very difficult and impossible to simply memorize a lot of facts and thereby arrive at a deep understanding of a big idea.  Students need to poke at the idea, turn it around a few times, perhaps challenge it, see it approached from different directions, etc.  That is why discussions are such an important part of many classes.

In this hour, Lucas will use a simple method for running good discussions to run a good discussion about running good discussions.  By participating in this meta-discussion, you will discover new ideas about how to make your discussions effective learning experiences.  Come with your questions about how to run effective discussions, and be prepared to share your own ideas.

Note: This workshop is part of the "What You Need to Know: Essentials of Effective Teaching" series.  You may register for any and all workshops in this series by clicking on the registration link above.
