Why Won’t they Talk?–Getting Students to Participate in Class

Thursday, November 3rd, 3:00 p.m.     McKillop 208

Most of us have met the uncomfortable wall of silence when asking a question of our students. If we wait long enough it is eventually answered by one of the same four or five students who always answer. How do we get more students to participate in class? A video by Dr. Maryellen Weimer, editor of Teaching Professor, will be our launching point for this discussion.

The video is available online at the embedded link. You will be required to log in with your Salve username and password to access the video. If you have difficulties accessing the video, please contact Annette Torrey for a copy.

Afternoons can be tough! So take a break, come to the CTL for a caffeine and sugar boost while you join with your colleagues in a lively discussion around this topic.
