NFTE: Up Next

The Art of Leading Discussion

Tuesday, February 17 from 2:30 to 4:00 PM

Annette Caldwell Simmons Hall 208

The spring kick-off NFTE session offers a unique set of ideas and strategies for getting the most out of a classroom discussion. In a discussion style format, attendees will have the opportunity to see first hand how to implement effective strategies that seamlessly carry a discussion from start to finish. 

Topics covered will include different types of discussion, increasing student participation, sharing authority, using silence to your advantage, and responding to student comments. Participants will leave with a new toolbox of ready to implement discussion strategies. 

 Additional spring programs coming soon...
