Chris Martin recently interviewed me for Kosmos Online, a project sponsored by the friendly folks at the Institute for Humane Studies. Our podcast covered the Socratic method, measuring class participation, and other teaching techniques used in law school and other settings. You can listen here or read a rough transcript here.
(Note that this semester, at the suggestion of my students, I decided to try an approach to grading classroom participation different from the one I described in my interview with Chris. So far, so good. The experiment has yet to finish, though, so I’m not sure what technique I’ll use next year.)
