Facilitating Discussions of Research Literature in STEM
Session Format: Remote Synchronous (Zoom)
Intended Audience: Faculty, Graduate Students, Postdocs
Session Abstract: This workshop provides an opportunity for instructors in STEM courses to discuss evidence-based practices that can promote more effective discussions of research literature. Through a series of group-based activities, instructors will consider methods for helping students effectively engage with readings ahead of class and facilitate productive discussions that include all students. This workshop will be most helpful to instructors who plan to mostly discuss research literature in class and less useful to those running textbook-based or problem-based courses.
