Description: How do we prevent academic exercises from becoming academic exercises? How do we create classrooms that enable engaged students to think creatively and critically? The focus of the workshop will be on the essential conditions for initiating this sort of classroom life, with a few thoughts about assessment in a classroom in which engaged students think.
