Technê , Technology, and Teaching: Using a Classical Method to Engage Learners

Tuesday, March 13 | 3:00PM–3:50PM | Room 552
Session Type: NC12
How can we use the Socratic method, an ancient and active learning practice, to help our users engage with technology? This session will explore the Socratic method as a technology (or technê) of teaching that enhances human interaction. Attendees will gain an understanding of the structured questioning of the Socratic method and develop approaches to using this method in their own teaching.
