CATL Reading Group – Discussion as a Way of Teaching by Brookfield & Preskill

Join your colleagues for this two-part discussion of the book over lunch.

CATL Reading Group – Discussion as a Way of Teaching: Tools & Techniques for Democratic Classrooms by Brookfield & Preskill (2005)
Tuesday, July 7th & 21st, 12:00-1:15 p.m.
Belk Pavilion 201

Discussion can be a useful method for prompting student thinking and learning, but facilitating it can be tricky. Brookfield and Preskill suggest practical tips for getting discussion started, keeping it going, and making it productive, respectful, balanced, and meaningful. Whether you are looking for new ways to improve class discussion or simply continuing to fine-tune discussion facilitation after years of experience, Discussion as a Way of Teaching can offer new ideas and also remind us why we make the effort to improve our facilitation skills. Lunch will be provided.

Please plan to attend both sessions. Register by June 10 to receive a copy of the book.
