Pedagogy - Blended Learning Masterclass Series
FBE Building (111 Barry Street), Level 6, Room 6.30Map
An online discussion forum can provide an area for students to build deeper understandings of subjects through the use of collegial discourse. Understanding the different types of interactions that can occur using this tool is key to addressing perceptions of learning and engagement during the delivery of your subject.
- Determine the student interactions that would be beneficial to your subject
- Decide how students can be guided to build deeper understandings of your subject
- Apply design methods which can encourage students to participate in your subject
This session will provide you with a plan for implementing a discussion board that is unique to your subject context and expectations.
