Only the replies to the one thread you selected
Barnards Star: I like having teaching assistants in the breakout rooms to guide discussion
Milky Way: Smaller breakout rooms would be nice
Darn Dyffra: Big fan of 3 breakout rooms w/Gaia, Anthony, or Prof Nesson in each
Milky Way: But I appreciated the push to get students to turn on cameras
Uranus: Smaller groups in breakout rooms seem to work better.
Uranus: But do appreciate the presence of one of the three leaders for at least some of that time
Sunflower: Is have the professor or a TA in the breakout room a bit like surveillance.
Milky Way: It is easier to hear from everyone in smaller rooms
Bodrog: I thought that the three breakout rooms, with a moderator in each, was excellent in helping to facilitate the discussion.
Yavin 4: I thought discussion in breakout rooms went better today, having a TA to guide
Langara: More and more people are saying it - Anthony and Gaia are some of the best TAs we've ever had. True experts. Other TAs in other law schools are very unprofessional. Just don't know their stuff. But Anthony and Gaia. We really think they know what they're doing. Really even better than that. They know more than a lot of other people. Wonderful.
Sunflower: I really like that the thread space has opened up everyone's opinions and brings in greater participation. Kudos professor for the wonderful idea.
Abydos: Although having the prof or a TA in the breakout room is a bit like surveillance, it is a worthwhile tradeoff to get more participation in the breakout room. The breakout room was always under the surveillance of our peers anyway. Threads is the place to be anonymous.
Darn Dyffra: I did like starting in threads as a whole group because then our breakout room built off ideas that other people had introduced anonymously
Triangulum: I think sometimes the questions for threads or breakout rooms could be tightened a bit more, sometimes we're left to discuss really vague sort of metaphysical ideas that are difficult to square with the main thrust of the class
Abydos: I agree with Triangulum, but there has already been a lot of improvement on that front.
Triangulum: For example Wonder Woman feminine spirit lasso of truth
Ganymede: I am still not sure whether John McEnroe was using the lasso of truth or not
Triangulum: hahahahaha
Celestis: It would be good for a little more intellectual humility in the class. In almost all of our discussions, there seems to be several unstated assumptions automatically taken for granted by a good chunk of the class: (1) That there is an objective set of values that we all subscribe to or should subscribe to; (2) That there is an objective definition of fundamentally subjective concepts like bias, racism, and fairness; (3) That we can actually answer what are ultimately empirical questions through socratic debate and breakout discussion. I think if we all took a step back and recognized that at the foundation of almost every single question we are discussing there is a simple value choice (e.g., liberty vs. equality), and one that is not any more justifiable logically than the other. I think if we all did that our conversations would be a lot more interesting and fruitful.
