In order for discussions to be an efficient use of class time, they must be conducted with clear goals and a solid plan for achieving those goals. Effective discussions can increase students' retention skills, help students connect class concepts with previous experiences or with global issues, and enable students to achieve higher-order learning objectives. Participants in this workshop will explore the design of effective discussions, including increasing student participation, posing questions of increasing complexity, and using reflection to promote deeper exploration into the topics being discussed.

Facilitated by Donna Bailey, CFE Teaching and Learning Consultant
