Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This special session provides an opportunity for participants to learn about a cooperative learning strategy through actively engaging in that strategy. Participants will experience Constructive Academic Controversy from the learner perspective and will have an opportunity to reflect on this experience. The combination of experience and reflection will help participants identify how Constructive Academic Controversy (and related pedagogies) could be used in their own classrooms to enhance students' learning, critical thinking, and learning experiences. Further, through the shared experience of practicing Constructive Academic Controversy in a special session, participants will identify a group of peers from whom they can seek guidance in the future.
