Seminar Description

To help instructors fine-tune their approach to participant-centered learning, Harvard Business Publishing offers a seminar on the art and craft of discussion leadership. Attendees experience the seminar both as instructor and student. First, as an instructor, by learning techniques for orchestrating classroom discussion, blackboard management, discussion plan preparation, etc. Second, as a student, by preparing and discussing cases about both teaching and traditional business issues.

This seminar will be hosted by ESSEC Business School and is open to all teaching faculty at degree-granting institutions.
