As instructors, we want our students to participate in the class and their own learning but often struggle with the best means to recognize and grade student participation:
Is it attendance? Is it simply about speaking up in a discussion? Is it about quality vs quantity (and how do we grade that!)? Can students truly contribute to the class and their own learning if they are not talking during discussions?
These are some of the questions our panel of faculty experts will address along with discussions of their own methods for encouraging, recognizing, and grading undergraduate student participation
