Bringing the Power Back to Discussion Boards

Have you ever posted a discussion that resulted in poor student participation or quality responses? On the other hand, have you ever posted a discussion that generated lots of student excitement and creative responses? What was the underlying difference? Why do some discussions work but others fail? 

It’s time to re-examine our implementation of discussion boards and ensure our discussions provide opportunities for students to engage in meaningful dialogue, extend their learning, and provoke critical thought. This session aims to achieve that and more. In addition, all participants will walk away with a complimentary checklist guide of actions to consider before, during, and after you deliver an online discussion.

Learning Objective

Participants will learn the best practices to consider before, during, and after you deliver a discussion board post.

Participants will explore educational technology tools they may leverage in place of a traditional learning management system to deliver an online discussion.
