For the CTL Certificate Program this seminar qualifies as one of the Stage 2 Focused Inquiry seminars.

This seminar will explore leading research and exemplary practices regarding how scholars can facilitate inquiry-based, student-centered discussions at the core of university teaching.  What constitutes a good discussion in your academic field?  How can you, as a discussion facilitator promote critical thinking, complex questioning, and deep understanding among your students?  
Doctoral students in the seminar will have an opportunity to develop discussion strategies appropriate to their academic disciplines, practice facilitating discussions, and receive critical feedback from members of the seminar.
