College and Beyond II: The Outcomes of Liberal Education Colloquium Series

The Discussion Project at the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Wisconsin Center for Education Research teaches instructors how to design and implement high quality discussion in their university classrooms. The speakers will explain the features of the course, why and how they created it, and the research that has informed the process. They will explain why students must “learn to discuss”—learn the skills of discussion—and “discuss to learn”—engage in discussion to learn key concepts and grapple with important issues.

Zoom – Registration Required:


Diana Hess, Dean and Karen A. Falk Distinguished Chair of Education, School of Education, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Lynn Glueck, Program Director, The Discussion Project, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Timothy McKay (Moderator), Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education; Arthur F. Thurnau Professor of Physics, Astronomy, Education, University of Michigan

In 2021-22 the College and Beyond II Public Colloquium Series will explore the links between liberal education and its outcomes, with a particular focus on democratic engagement. This fall, researchers and leaders of projects focused on better understanding and increasing civic and political engagement will discuss ongoing efforts and new initiatives. In winter 2022, seminars will feature research on the enduring impact of liberal education conducted with the College and Beyond II dataset, which contains rich data about students’ experiences in and beyond college and will open to researchers in June 2022.
