    Location:

    Debate as pedagogy: Practices, tools, and examples from Harvard faculty

    Why and when should debate be used as a teaching and learning tool?

    Eric Beerbohm (government), Jill Lepore (history), and Charles Nesson (law) will share how they use debate in their classes. Attendees will also participate in a debate about the use of laptops in the classroom, and (not coincidentally, but perhaps ironically) are encouraged to bring laptops or other electronic devices.
