Encouraging Student Participation

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. Particpants 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. 

Registration for workshops is mandatory which ensures distribution of pre-workshop materials and accurate attendance records.

Please contact teaching@pitt.edu for any special accomodation needs. 

Friday, February 14 at 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
