Why would anyone want to introduce controversies into their classroom? This
workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to see how structured
controversies are developed, implemented, and managed at various scales in
the classroom to facilitate active and cooperative learning environments as
well as to meet various teaching and learning objectives. As an outcome of
the workshop, participants will have an opportunity to develop a structured
controversy that they can use in their own classroom to meet desired
teaching and learning objectives. Participants are encouraged to think about
a controversial topic in their own discipline that they would be willing to
share with the group. Materials to develop structured controversies as well
as supportive readings will be distributed at the program.
