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. Participants will then work together to identify strategies for addressing the challlenges in facilitating discussion they have faced in their own classes.
