Applying Principles of Transparency to Support Equitable Classroom Discussions
What are the purposes of class discussion in your courses? How can you use both asynchronous and synchronous/face-to-face (f2f) discussions to help students learn? How do you communicate to students your goals and expectations around their participation in the discussion? And, how do you fairly assess this dimension of their learning? In this interactive synchronous workshop participants will reflect upon their use of synchronous/f2f and asynchronous discussions in the remote f2f learning environments and apply the principle of transparency to improve equity in their teaching practice. This session will be helpful for participants who 1. Use discussion (in any form) as a teaching tool in their course; and 2. Have already spent some time thinking about equity forward teaching.
