Let the Talking Begin: A Collection of Posts on Fostering Learning Conversations

12 Jan

As part of consultations and conversations during these weeks ahead of Spring 2015, I’ve been asking readers of our blog to name a blog post they found especially helpful or find themselves coming back to at the start of a new term. Six posts were most often named – and each is in the top tier of our list of most read posts.

For this post, then, we’ll list those six highly recommended pieces, closing, and included excerpts from the two most referenced posts.
