Day 99: Encouraging Dialogue in Whiteboard Presentations

20140311_084422

 

Recently, when students are presenting whiteboards and either (a) we get that ‘deer in the headlights’ look, or (b) something really puzzling or difficult comes up, I have been stopping the presentation to have all the student pairs discuss what they think about the topic. This does two things, I think. 1) It gets the audience more involved, and 2) it gives the presenters a chance to regroup and think about what they want to say. I’ve been enjoying this twist on whiteboard presentations.
