Session 240

Case Discussions: Maintaining the 'Right' Amount of Control

Track T

Date: Tuesday, October 13, 2009


Time: 10:00 – 11:15

Special Panel

Room: Meeting Room 8

Session Chair:
Jay Dial, Ohio State University


This demonstration session will involve the actual teaching of a case among session participants and will include a de-brief of the teaching method. The case itself (“The Section Just Took Over” by C. Roland Christensen) and the de-brief discussion will focus on the issues of maintaining control of the discussion. The case is a brief and will be handed out to participants at the beginning of the session. What is the “right” amount of control? We recognize that keeping too tight a grip on the discussion can be as problematic as losing the class. We will also explore broader issues relating to the practice of discussion teaching/learning.
