Stand or Sit: Facilitating class discussions in larger, lower-level courses
Class discussions are excellent pedagogical strategies but, having students voice their opinions can be challenging. The challenge of engagement is often worse in larger classes and among more junior students who have not developed to the skills of voicing their opinions in class. In this session, I will discuss and demonstrate my “stand/sit” strategy, a small twist to typical discussions, that I use to encourage discussions in a larger, lower-level course.
