Associate Professor of Communication and Digital Media Laura Huaracha and Provost David Timmerman will host a workshop titled “From Think-Pair-Share to Snapchatting: Five Reliable Old-School and Five Fresh New Ways to Elevate Class Discussion” from 4 to 5 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 12 in the Teaching Commons (Hedberg 223). 

Well-planned and well-managed discussion can help students achieve nearly every type of learning outcome. Facilitating meaningful participation by all students and achieving just the right balance of structure and flow requires us to develop an ever-expanding repertoire of different strategies and approaches, including those involving technologies. Presenters for this session will discuss proven and emerging approaches to facilitating successful discussions, and invite participants to share their own successes.
