Modeled after “speed dating”, speed theorizing serves as an opportunity for learners to engage with one another in concise, focused theoretical conversations. I have found that, at times, students come into courses feeling as though theoretical concepts and ideas must either be immediately grasped or discarded. Speed theorizing is one of the pedagogical activities I have used to try to help learners dwell with theoretical ideas a bit. In this session, we will design a speed theorizing experience; practice some speed theorizing together; and discuss our experience.
