Catherine Haines, University of Nottingham on “How best to engage your learners in purposeful conversations” at the Students in Conversation conference, April 2014.

Session abstract:
Much educational activity rests on learners discussing material on which they then formulate and answer questions. This session seeks to identify specific behaviours which teachers can use to enhance discussion, both in the quantity and quality of interaction, questions and answers. It will review how to incorporate these behaviours into everyday practice across a range of teaching methods.
