This workshop will outline pedagogical techniques for leading classroom discussions and demonstrate classroom discussion practices. During this session GTA/IAs will be able to familiarize themselves with standard university classroom management and effective methods for directing students’ in-class oral responses to course material. Several of the most effective methodologies to leading a discussion will be outlined, and then modeled in a conversation about leading classroom discussions. A recognition of the decisions made during discussion facilitation will also be addressed. Ample time will be provided to answer any questions.
