Studio: Cultivate Community with Assigned Discussion Roles
Register Here

Friday, March 5, 10 a.m.-12 p.m.
Friday, April 2, 10 a.m.-12 p.m.

Join online and strategic learning and your peers as we practice assigned discussion roles for any modality. Engaging in discussions with assigned roles cultivates thoughtful dialogue and critical thinking; the structure of roles builds confidence in articulating points with clarify and assures that all voices contribute equally. Together we will actively explore an engaging discussion system for online, asynchronous classes in Canvas and in-person classes or synchronous lectures in Zoom.

In this two-hour hands-on Studio in Zoom and Canvas resource course, you will:
  • Engage synchronously via Zoom in the main session and breakout rooms.
  • Engage in discussions online in a Canvas course as conversation ‘starters,’ ‘provocateurs’ who ‘provoke’ thoughtful dialogue and critical thinking, and ‘landscapers’ who synthesize the key points of the conversation.
