As graduate educators, how do we facilitate effective discussions in the classroom? In this workshop, we will explore a variety of discussion techniques that TA’s can add to their teaching toolboxes to encourage student success and participation. We will discuss the importance of utilizing a variety of approaches, matching classroom activities to student strengths and communication styles, and creating respectful spaces of discussion and collaboration. This workshop is intended as a refresher of principles covered in TA training and will be most useful to graduate students of all levels in the Humanities and Qualitative Social Sciences.
