Arguably, the best classrooms are ones in which all students feel they are able to make a contribution to group dialogue. All too often though, students do not participate in group discussions, or worse, they are not really heard when they do. In this workshop, participants will learn how gender dynamics operate in group settings to often stifle or undermine women's contributions. Drawing on research on team dynamics in the workplace, participants will work together to develop classroom-based mechanisms to reduce the likelihood that women's voices go unheard in group discussion.

The Center for Community Engagement welcomes the opportunity to meet one-on-one with faculty or with a small group of faculty (including an academic program) to consult in the design, development and implementation of service-learning activities – or just to discuss or share information about service-learning and related issues and concerns. Consultations typically require 45-60 minutes.
