'Beyond Discussion Boards: Other Methods to Encourage Student Collaboration' - July 7

The Teaching and Learning Center and Applied Learning are pleased to announce "Beyond Discussion Boards: Other Methods to Encourage Student Collaboration," the next workshop in our new conversation series in preparation for remote and hybrid learning in the fall, on Tuesday, July 7, from noon to 1:00 p.m.

The series will look at a number of topics centered on applied learning in an online environment. A short presentation will be followed by a discussion exploring ways we can design new activities or adapt or revise current projects.

This talk, presented by Katrina Fulcher-Rood, associate professor of speech-language pathology, will first discuss the use of discussion boards in online or remote classes including prompts, grading expectations, and rubrics. Following this, alternatives for student collaboration and engagement outside of discussion boards will be discussed (e.g., use of Google docs/presentations, breakout rooms, group discussion boards, etc). Time for brainstorming among attendees will end the talk.

Please register through the Workshop Registration System.
