Teaching with Your Mouth Shut Book Discussion
Don Finkel, author of Teaching with Your Mouth Shut, argues that “great teachers” do far more for students than “tell” them what they did not previously know. In fact, they do little of that because what is told is simply not retained for a significant period of time.
In the first session, facilitators will provoke reflection on some of the many ways teaching can be organized and encourage participants to reflect critically on their experiences teaching “with their mouths shut”. In the second session, participants will share their new ideas for incorporating Finkel’s ideas in their own courses.
Fridays, November 10 & 17, 2017
Location to be determined
*Note: Participation is limited to the first 20 faculty registrants.
