Conversations in the Classroom

Category: Workshops
Dates: 15th, 16th & 17th April 2019 | Time: 2:30 PM – 5:00 PM

Students need to be able to talk about their learning with their teachers and other students in a variety of contexts to become independent, self-motivated learners. Research proves that students learn and retain more from dialogic discussions than through lecture or question-and-answer sessions. This workshop is designed to help teachers transform their classrooms into active, engaging learning centers by organising thought-provoking classroom discussions.
