Day 99: Encouraging Dialogue in Whiteboard Presentations



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.
