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.
