In my class syllabi I state my classes are highly interactive. However, student interaction is the bare minimum of what I’m shooting for. I don’t want polite, safe interactions. I want memorable interactions that open students’ hearts and minds to different ways of feeling and thinking. In this session we will discuss strategies and activities that have the potential to create the type of classroom environment that facilitates a climate that encourages and facilitates students’ efforts to engage each other and me in meaningful, transformational ways.
