Discussion is not just sharing ideas and answering questions. It can assist students in developing deeper understanding while honing their communication skills. A form of experiential learning, discussions empower students to communicate and vocalize their thinking, internalize experiences, and encourages them to more aptly reflect on and apply what they learn. In this interactive session, we will explore examples and exercises that you can use in any course to facilitate discussion and gauge student comprehension.
