Debate Across the Curriculum

Day Friday, November 08
Time 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM
Where LN-1324C

Regardless of the discipline, debate can serve as an innovative way to run class discussion, review course material, teach students how to work in groups and help students become better at articulating their thoughts. This workshop will review ways to integrate several different styles of debate activities both for courses geared to the “O” gen-ed as well as for instructors who teach a general curriculum but are looking for new ways to get students involved. Instructors will learn how to efficiently manage course time so that, regardless if they’re planning a whole unit or just want to do an activity for a day, they can maximize the benefits of debate without detracting from already existing lesson plans. Ultimately, this workshop will provide tools on how to integrate debate into classroom teaching as a supplemental strategy to engage students and assist them in learning through a hands-on process.

Co-sponsored by the Binghamton Speech and Debate Team.

Register online by Wednesday, Nov. 6. You will need to log into BMail. Lunch will be provided.
