Have you ever asked a question or tried to start a discussion in a face-to-face class, only to be met by silence and averted eyes? Verbal interactions might be the oldest form of teaching and learning, excellent for checking comprehension and fostering deep learning – but that doesn’t mean they’re easy to pull off! This session will expose participants to a variety of course-design and teaching tips for encouraging students to have the courage to speak up in class. Participants will also discuss their own experiences, drawing on each other’s strategies and in order to answer their specific questions about in-class discussions. Fair warning: if your ideal teaching environment is a silent room filled only by your authoritative voice, don’t attend this session! In order to cover this topic fully, this will be a two-part workshop. Participants will attend either two consecutive Fridays (Session A) OR two consecutive Tuesdays (Session B).
