Harkness Tables - With their oval shape and low student-to-teacher ratio, Harkness Tables offer an interactive style learning experience that involves all students in dynamic discussions. Harkness discussions foster in-depth understanding of course material and help students grow in their ability to listen, collaborate, and articulate their views while respecting those of others. Classroom discussions that take place at Harkness Tables challenge students to take responsibility for their own learning; they formulate topics, pose questions, and ignite a dialogue that brings lessons alive and leads to new insights. The cooperative learning environment enhances academic rigor and substance with students and faculty alike finding their work more meaningful in the context of this collaborative experience.
