“Fostering Dynamic Dialogue in the Classroom”.
A panel of professors from various departments/colleges will describe how they engage students in dialogic discussions. Dialogic discussions are multi-voiced; ideas emerge and shift as people contribute to the discussion. Rather than leading students to a particular interpretation of something that was read, the teacher/professor holds off contributing his/her evaluation and encourages students to share their thinking. Please join us as we share our inquiries and insights.
Resources from all CELT activities can be found withn the Resources link on the TLA Center homepage and clicking on TLA Center associated events.
