Ensuring Student Engagement (and Learning!) on Discussion Boards

September 9 @ 10:30 AM - 11:45 AM

Registration: https://albany.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_eJPgJvSJZCgBYtD

If you are used to teaching a face-to-face course that involves student discussion, you are probably used to a lot of lively exchanges between students. If we want to ensure that asynchronous discussions are equally dynamic, we need to think very carefully about the conditions that will reliably foster student engagement. In this interactive workshop, you will learn strategies to create the same feeling of discovery and debate that make discussion a powerful learning tool in face-to-face class meetings. You will have the opportunity to sketch out some new ideas for asynchronous discussions during the session.
