Join Essential Partners for a two-day training to learn and implement the dialogic classroom. In first-year lecture classes and Ph.D. seminars alike, we have helped teachers and students make the shift to a dialogic classroom. The benefits have been broad and deep. Our research has found that the dialogic classroom:
- improves learning outcomes;
- fosters curiosity about course content;
- encourages more students to participate;
- strengthens interpersonal connections;
- helps students feel like they belong.
The dialogic classroom also leads students toward that crucial balance between intellectual humility and personal conviction, a key to intellectual rigor and for the health of a free democratic society.
The building blocks to a dialogic classroom can be adapted to your course and teaching style, whether it's a big lecture hall or a small seminar, in the humanities or in STEM fields.
