Hands-On Workshops on Effective Classroom Participation Strategies for Latinx and All Students

Status message

Please note that this event has already occurred.

This series of three workshops focus on the same topic, with different practical strategies in each. Folks can attend only one or all 3. Sign up for other workshops in the series. 

What comes to mind when we think about effective classroom student participation? We certainly think about insightful comments and building interesting connections that will foster a high level of energy and enthusiasm in the classroom.

So how can we encourage quieter students to communicate their opinions?

Understanding communication as more than words, sentences and languages is a key element in effective teaching. Non-verbal communication can also be very powerful and motivate students with diverse cultural backgrounds, different life experiences and learning styles. In each of these hands-on workshops, you will get to know one different strategy that ensures 100 percent of class participation in a dynamic and supportive way. Attendees will leave each session ready to apply strategies in your very next class! 

Facilitated by Professor Ana Mesquita Emlinger, Faculty Fellow for Latinx Student Success
