I’ve written before in the importance of community student engagement. Often I will ask student’s to share their experience with the class but this can be a challenge in that not all students are willing to share with the whole class. It also becomes limiting in the time it takes for everyone to participate. Dyadic interviews are a more personal way of achieving this by having students work in pairs interviewing each other. The line of questioning can be instructor lead or student generated for further engagement.
My classmate Adam shared a great infographic outlining the steps for this instructional techniques.
