Debate Across the Curriculum - Creating Active Learning Through Constructive Argument

  1. Wednesday, October 30th, 20133:30pm - 4:45pm

Debate across the curriculum will look at the many ways that structured, constructive argument can serve to improve the quality of learner-centered education in and out of the classroom.  Whether your desire is to start class in a way that holds on to student attention, foster effective discussion during class, or ask students to engage in higher order thinking prior to arrival, this session will offer a number of concrete suggestions for the role of the teacher. A number of potential grading rubrics, guidelines to students, and suggested formats will offer instructors tangible tools they can immediately use in the classroom.
