Join a conversation on class participation to learn and share ideas, resources, and tools for establishing broader and deeper student engagement and interaction. We will facilitate this discussion using an activity that invites all voices, the Whip Around.

The primary audience is faculty, instructors (including teaching assistants), and instructional staff who directly support teaching and learning. Those who are teaching or actively supporting the classroom experience this academic year will benefit the most, as we will be focusing on teaching practices and the ways that participants can apply these practices in their current teaching.

This webinar falls under the following themes:

  • Theoretical foundations: Teaching in globally diverse classes
  • Support for group work: Supporting long-term or high stakes student groups
  • Inclusive learning communities: Integration, inclusion and community building in the classroom
  • Intercultural interaction: Developing important skills and attitudes


What was the most worthwhile aspect of the webinar for you?

[The most worthwhile aspect of this webinar was] all of it. The article, the focusing on specific pieces of the text, the time to have open discussion. Great sequence in an impressively short timespan.” 2020 participant
