The ability to listen and exchange ideas with one’s peers are critically important skills, but developing these attributes in students can be challenging. Because groups often have a mixture of eager participants and quiet listeners, the discussions can easily become unbalanced.
At the next University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education session, Nicole Deming, assistant professor of bioethics, will lead a discussion titled “Improving Classroom Discussions.”
She will illustrate the practices used to help students actively participate in classroom discussion.
This session will be held today (Feb. 9) from noon to 1 p.m. in the Allen Memorial Medical Library’s Herrick Room (use Adelbert Road doors).
