Discussions are (potentially) a great way to engage students in online learning environments. They can be designed to cultivate a learning community and to scaffold content achievement in many ways, e.g., un-/graded,student-/instructor-lead, or group/individual. Asynchronous discussion activities allow students flexible time to reflect and opportunities to learn from peers.
When an instructor knows how to use and facilitate discussions effectively in course contexts, they will be able to create a more active and engaging course.
This session is for the instructors who are new to online teaching and want to incorporate discussions into their course in order to foster student learning.
