Improve Participation in College Classrooms: How to Create a Discussion Strategy that Will Increase Student Learning and Engagement

Classroom discussions: Making student participation the norm rather than the exception

Overview

Being part of a discussion can promote learning as well as the development of critical thinking skills. So it makes perfect sense to use discussion as a primary teaching strategy in college and university classrooms.

If your previous efforts to engage students in a discussion were met with silence, it could make you reluctant to try again. But before you give up on using discussion in your classroom, consider this online seminar from Magna Publications that provides you with techniques you can use to effectively engage students in classroom discussion—and make participation the norm rather than the exception.

BENEFITS
