The Leaderless Group Discussion

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This moderated discussion will draw on the knowledge, experience, questions, and goals of the session attendees to explore the questions, “What does it mean to have a student-centered classroom in 2016, and how can you get there?” You will explore the answers to the questions by participating in a leaderless group discussion. The leaderless group discussion is a student-centered learning practice designed to give all students an opportunity to find their voices, and take ownership of their learning. The structure of the leaderless group discussion allows the teacher to construct a classroom atmosphere that promotes critical thinking, positive social interaction, and high levels of engagement.
