Global Awareness-CTL: Please Talk! Promoting Class Participation

This is a past event.

Presented in the UAB Center for Teaching and Learning for UAB faculty by Melissa Hawkins, Ph.D. 

International students from certain educational backgrounds are naturally reticent to speak out in class, simply due to cultural differences, and many American students are hestitant to participate as well. Review ideas you can use to help students understand why our educational culture values classroom discussion and how to participate effectively and appropriately. Learn ways to spur-on involvement spontaneously during class.
