Teachers on Teaching: John Capps and Wade Robison on Discussion-Intensive Courses

John Capps and Wade Robison's session on Teaching Discussion-Intensive Courses is part of the Teachers on Teaching series, sponsored by Teaching and Learning Services.

Discussion is a powerful pedagogical tool that can increase student engagement and comprehension of course material. Discussion encourages our students to think critically, to consider a variety of perspectives, and to give reasons in support of their conclusions. But we aren’t always clear on what discussion is, how to incorporate discussion into our classes, or how to assess it. For the last two years the Philosophy Department has been piloting “discussion-intensive” (DI) courses that use discussion to enhance student understanding, collaboration, and interaction. We’ll present some of our findings as well as tips for successful discussions — and leave plenty of time for discussion.

John Capps is Professor of Philosophy and Wade L. Robison is the Ezra A. Hale Professor of Applied Ethics; both are in the Department of Philosophy, College of Liberal Arts.

Moumita Das, Ph.D. Assistant Professor, School of Physics and Astronomy
TALK: A multi-scale understanding of tissue mechanobiology-bridging the gap Biological tissues sense and respond to their environment via mechanisms at the molecular, cellular, and macrosopic scales.  I and my students use multi-scale  models to explain how mechanical stresses are sensed and transmitted in cells and tissues, and how these processes impact tissue dynamics, properties, and biological functions in health and disease.

Poornima Padmanabhan, Ph.D. Assistant Professor, Chemical Engineering
TALK: How do we reverse engineer across length scales? Bridging the gap through modeling.  Through chemistry, it is possible to tune interactions at the molecular level, but predictive knowledge of how that affects structure and function of materials across multiple length scales is not easy to obtain directly from experiments.  Molecular modeling can bridge this gap and simultaneously provide information on one and thousands of molecules, insights from which can be used to rationally design materials.

Sara Schley, Ed.D. Professor, RIT/NTID
TALK: Bridging the Gap between students and faculty: Student Mentors and Improving Access and Inclusion Diverse classrooms can present challenges for access and inclusion:  If students rely on an interpreter they cannot simultaneously watch projected video or written information; if students have different communication abilities and preferences, it can be difficult to conduct collaborative activities.  This talk will discuss a model of using student mentors to inform classroom pedagogy.

Archana Jain, Ph.D. Assistant Professor, Finance
TALK: Bridging the gap between fundamental value and asset price with input from pessimists. Description: Short sellers, investors with the pessimist view, help in bridging the gap between the fundamental value of an asset and its market price when it is overvalued.  I study the regulations around short selling activity, market efficiency in presence of short sellers, and determinants of short selling activity.

Michigan CRLT Players

Join the University of Michigan's CRLT Players for Cuts: Responding to Student Concerns, a two-session series, that invites participants to think together about the many forces that can shape campus climate both positively and negatively.  Built around a series of vignettes that explore students' experiences of marginalization, each session offers a space where participants can practice engaging in difficult conversations about and across differences in identity while also reflecting on their personal responsibilities to cultivate inclusive and equitable spaces within and outside of the classroom.

Session 1: Mariam
"Mariam" is offered twice on Wednesday, February 28: 9-11 am (http://bit.ly/Michigan-Mariam-AM) AND the same session is repeated from 1:25-3:25 pm (http://bit.ly/Michigan-Mariam-PM). This is an interactive workshop involving five actors where participants will: 

  • Analyze a series of bias incidents from the perspective of a targeted student.
  • Reflect on their own experiences of marginalizing behavior--as target, aggressor, or bystander.
  • Explore strategies for intervening effectively when they observe marginalizing behavior and for responding productively when concern about their own behavior is raised.
Session 2: Carter
"Carter" is offered twice on March 1 from 9:30-11:30 (http://bit.ly/Michigan-Carter-AM)  AND the same session is repeated from 1:20-3:20 pm (http://bit.ly/Michigan-Carter-PM). This interactive workshop involves two actors where participants will: 
  • Consider the impacts of an 'isolated' bias incident on a targeted student.
  • Reflect on the ways they listen to others' stories about negative experiences of climate at RIT
  • Develop strategies for responding to concerns shared with them in ways that might mitigate rather than exacerbate existing climate concerns
