Discussion in the College Classroom: Triangulating Observational and Survey Results.
Nunn, Claudia E.
Journal of Higher Education, v67 n3 p243-66 May-Jun 1996
To examine classroom discussion, observations were made in 20 college classes and surveys were administered to 20 faculty and 579 students. Results indicate that little time was devoted to interaction and few students participated. However, teaching techniques (praise, probing for elaboration, accepting answers, repeating students' answers, using students' names, correcting wrong answers) correlated significantly with participation.
