Audrey's curator insight, November 18, 2013 4:32 PM

The tips are: Imitate good conversations; encourage non-verbal behaviour as it shows interest; challenge hurtful comments; ask open-ended questions; Do not accept , 'I dont'know'. Ask, 'What do you think?; Ask students informal questions, e.g. about their other classes; make eye contact.  This shows you are listening; encourage turn-taking.
