Building Better Online Discussions (Online Workshop)

Sunday, Oct 22, 2017
All Day
ONLINEMap Location

This is an ONLINE opportunity available from 10/22/17 thru 10/29/17.

One key to successful online discussions is getting the prompt right. In this workshop, participants will read a few short articles about designing effective online discussions, focusing on the idea that a good discussion begins with a good discussion prompt. Faculty will participate in two online discussions, one that addresses prior experiences with online discussions and one that provides a venue for critiquing sample discussion prompts. The goal of the second discussion is to collectively create a set of guidelines for creating effective discussion prompts. Finally, each participant will submit a discussion prompt for one of his or her courses, to be reviewed by the workshop facilitators.

Facilitated by Kevin Wilson and Teresa Focarile
