In addition, we will develop a list of questions for Dr. McGuire, who will visit the KSU campus for a presentation and book signing as part of the Gateways 2 Completion project.

The facilitation of discussion is a teaching technique that many of us use in our classes. Yet, so often we don't draw out the level of engagement we would like to see from our students, either in terms of quality or distribution of participation throughout the class. This workshop will highlight simple, yet effective, discussion facilitation and note-taking practices from the literature and the facilitators' teaching experiences.
