PEEL Faculty Workshop: Facilitating and Enhancing Classroom Discourse

Time: 7/15/2004 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Location: Viking Union 464

No matter what the discipline, promoting open and meaningful dialogue among students is critical to achieving course objectives and a deeper understanding of content. Western faculty are invited to join facilitators Nidhi Mahendra, Ph.D., and Terri Riffe, Ph.D. from the University of Arizona’s Teaching Center PEEL Project, for this special, interactive workshop. The facilitators will guide participants through a two-step process for understanding the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of creating a safe, inclusive environment for purposeful discourse in college classrooms, as well as give them resources, practical strategies, and suggestions for classroom activities. Due to space constraints, reservations are required. To check if there is still room, contact Ann Carlson, at the email below.
