Event Details

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 concentration 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 tahelp@pitt.edu

Registration for University Center for Teaching and Learning workshops is mandatory. Registering for workshops ensures the distribution of pre-workshop materials and helps maintain the integrity of our attendance records.

If you have any special accommodation needs, please contact us at workshops@teaching.pitt.edu in advance.

If you are unable to come to this workshop in person, a livestream can be arranged for remote attendance. Please contact us at least 5 business days prior to the workshop to request a livestream.
