The Discussion Project

The Discussion Project has both in-person and online courses scheduled for winter 2022! The Discussion Project In-Person and The Discussion Project Virtual (online) are both free, and support UW-Madison instructors in designing and implementing classroom discussion for classes of 40 or fewer students. The in-person course is held for three consecutive days on campus, from 8:30am until 4:30pm. The online course, which focuses on synchronous video discussion, consists of seven, two-hour Zoom sessions, each preceded by an hour of asynchronous work in Canvas. Applications are open to faculty, academic staff and teaching assistants.
