Suggestions for leading discussion:

  • Do the readings ahead of time
  • Think about what kind of presentation would engage your peers
  • Use relevant examples/cases in the media to illustrate points
  • Use images, short video, slides to engage your audience
  • Think of the major points or problems you think are worth discussing
  • Think of the major points or problems you think people ought to know, know about, or have thought about by the end of the discussion. Communicate these clearly
  • Make a list of questions you think would be interesting/engaging to discuss
  • Let me know if you would like me to bring materials or make copies for you
