Discussion-Based Learning Symposium

Join us for this exciting three day workshop!

Come explore how you can utilize student-centred, discussion-based, collaborative techniques to enhance your educational program and foster the growth of core competencies. You will be introduced to the Harkness philosophy, see how it is utilized in your subject area, and have an opportunity to practice the technique. 

You will learn about the Harkness philosophy at Southridge School and hear from educators who are currently researching and using discussion-based learning techniques in their classrooms.

Who might be interested? 

  • Humanities, Arts, Science, Mathematics, and Modern Languages educators who would like to incorporate discussion-based learning in their classrooms
  • Administrators who are interested in student-centred educational practices
  • Educational professionals who would like to learn more about the Harkness philosophy
