Leading Effective Discussions is a half-course that will introduce you to the basic skills involved in promoting, leading, and sustaining educationally-effective discussions. The course involves discussion-based active learning lessons and participant-led microteaching sessions. You will have an opportunity to put what you have learned into practice, and receive feedback on your teaching from the other participants.

By experiencing a variety of discussion methods in the student role, reading about them in the text, and practicing some of them, you will be in a better position to judge which methods you would like to use, and how these methods can be adapted to suit your personal teaching style and disciplinary needs.
