Thinking and Talking: Oral Communication in the Classroom
Wednesday, January 29, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Andreas Karatsolis, Lecturer, CMS/W and Associate Director of Writing Across the Curriculum
This workshop will examine the rich variety of forms that classroom oral presentations can take, both as a way to scaffold thinking and as a way to assess students’ conceptual understanding. Workshop participants will be able to work on (re)designing assignments for their current or future courses by developing:
- A deeper understanding of fundamental oral communication concepts.
- Strategies to integrate oral communication assignments into a class.
- Techniques and tools to provide feedback on student presentations.
Writing Across the Curriculum IAP workshops are open to MIT faculty and teaching assistants who are interested in integrating writing and speaking into their subjects.
