Discussions on Discussions: Encouraging Learning and Building “Community”
Do you have a love/hate relationship with discussions in your online courses? Want to talk about it? Join your colleagues each month for a frank conversation about the challenges involved with creating and facilitating meaningful discussions in online courses. Possible topics may include encouraging “meaningful” responses, the goal and design of different discussion formats and frameworks, the role of the instructor in class discussions, the definition of “community” in the online environment, methods for grading and evaluating student responses, and much more! Faculty are invited to contribute to this informal, ongoing, collaborative community focused on developing effective strategies for increasing engagement and cooperative learning in online courses.
Facilitated by Tom Mays and Tsuneo Ferguson
Via Zoom; advance registration is preferred. To attend, connect with Robyn Brown, E-Campus Coordinator for E-Faculty Engagement, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
