Does it feel like pulling teeth to have an effective discussion in your class? Are your classes so large that an effective discussion is almost impossible? During this 75-minute session, we will introduce you to the best practices in setting up, delivering, and assessing discussions in your online, blended, or technology-enhanced courses. We will look at how using the Discussion Tool in CourseDen (D2L) can enhance student engagement, achievement, and participation from all of your students.
