Teaching: Strategies for Facilitating Discussions

Are you and your students getting tired of message boards where they post a response and reply to two peers? Are you struggling with participation in face-to-face discussions? Join us for a look at different tools and methods for facilitating discussions in both face-to-face and online settings. We will share strategies for both synchronous and asynchronous conversations, with a special focus on crafting engaging questions and assessing participation. 

This workshop is part of the Instructor Practices for Effective Teaching series for GW instructors seeking strategies to increase student engagement, build an inclusive community, and communicate with learners in new ways. Workshops in this series are sponsored by the Instructional Core. The Instructional Core provides comprehensive, integrated solutions for instructors in search of teaching solutions. If you need feedback on assignment or syllabus design, advice on teaching methods, or ideas for new activities, consider booking a consultation with the Instructional Core.

All sessions are free to GW students, faculty, staff, and alumni. GW has an institutional commitment to ensuring that all of our programs and events are accessible for all individuals. If you require any accommodations to participate in this event, please contact libraryevents@gwu.edu at least 72 business hours (3 business days) prior to the event.
