Two Ears and One Mouth: A Recipe for Effective Listening

10:45 - 11:45 AM

Listening is one of our most important communication skills. In fact, the International Day of Listening (IDL) is September 21, 2017. In this session, participants will be introduced to the six stages of the listening process and the potential pitfalls that occur along the way to understanding. The presenters will describe the four types of listening and provide a context for each type. Examples of classroom exercises used in the inaugural IDL will be shared. Participants will be encouraged to develop, refine and incorporate their own classroom activity to celebrate the International Day of Listening. After FFPDD, an on-going Discussion Forum and a one-time CTL Workshop will be offered to the participants in order to continue the development of these activities.
