In 2018, as part of its 10-year regional accreditation renewal, the University of Miami enacted its new Quality Enhancement Plan: Learning through Dialogue and Discussion. Acknowledging that research indicates that student-to-student dialogue promotes active learning, socialization, and knowledge construction, the QEP promotes the incorporation of Harkness, flipped classroom, and problem-based teaching strategies in undergraduate courses.

In this featured breakout session, William S. Green, Senior Vice Provost and Dean of Undergraduate Education, will discuss the University of Miami’s quality enhancement efforts pertaining to discussion-based learning and relate his own experiences co-teaching Sacred Spaces, an interdisciplinary, discussion-based course with Religious Studies and Architecture students.
