Collaborative discussion is a powerful tool to transform students’ individual and collective understandings and their interactions. In this session, participants will engage in a model discussion that uses a developmental approach to inclusive dialogue. In this model discussion, participants are in the role that students are in during Touchstones® discussions. They will learn strategies to build engagement and psychological safety and to overcome barriers to participation. With discussion evaluation tools, educators explore the role of self-reflection and group assessment in a classroom where all students are active learners, regardless of perceived ability or background.
· discuss traditional (teacher-directed) versus shared-leadership (student-directed) discussions,
· engage in a discussion where each person is learning to share leadership that advances the whole group, and
· self-reflect and collaboratively evaluate individual and collective efforts in the discussion.
Registrants will be provided with a Zoom link prior to the session.
