Few things are less comfortable than asking a question and seeing a classroom full of blank faces staring back at you in silence. In this workshop, we cover strategies for eliciting student participation, best practices for handling difficult students, encouraging the quiet students to contribute, and other common challenges in the classroom. Participants will leave the workshop with strategies to engage all of their students in the learning process.
This workshop may be counted toward the Pedagogy cluster of the Achievement in Pedagogy badge, offered through the Graduate Student Teaching Initiative. For more information, see: http://www.teaching.pitt.edu/teaching-support/ta-services/achievement-in-pedagogy-badge// or contact email@example.com.
