First Fridays for Graduate Students, February 1: “The Discourse of Teaching”

The CTL is pleased to announce our upcoming First Fridays event,  Friday February 1, 12:30-1:30, Gerberding Hall Suite 100.  First Fridays—a monthly brownbag series for UW graduate students focused on teaching topics, networking, and professional development. Tea, coffee, and cookies provided; feel free to bring your lunch. Registration not required for this event.
Topic:  The Discourse of Teaching:  How to Get your Students Thinking and Talking Productively
We’ll discuss an easy-to-adopt model that can help you reflect on language you use in the classroom. We’ll “unpack” the power of the right question at the right time to encourage students to explain their reasoning and engage in productive classroom talk. This model is applicable across disciplines and provides a means to more effectively formulate questions, respond to students, and direct discussions to get your students actively thinking and learning.
Facilitator: Brigid Nulty, M.S.
