Challenges and Strategies for Effective Classroom Discussions

April 12th, 2013
2-4 pm

Location
Jones 100

Panel Discussion with Red Tremmel, Gender and Sexuality Studies; Supriya Nair, English; Allison Truitt, Anthropology; and Casey Kane Love, Political Science and Altman Program

Running an effective discussion is one of the most challenging undertakings for graduate student instructors and early career professors. Discussions will often go in unproductive directions, veer away from your intended objectives, die a painful and awkward death or never emerge at all. This panel discussion brings together seasoned professors who have developed creative strategies for encouraging and directing student participation at a variety of class levels—from introductory to advanced—and for diverse class sizes. Please feel free to share this invitation with other graduate student instructors and professors. This event is in conjunction with LAST 7950—Pedagogy and Professional Development: Teaching Latin American Studies. contact ewolfe@tulane.edu
