One of the best ways to get your students involved in your course is to use online discussion forums. In the traditional classroom, students won’t speak up, or they freeze up, or they just don’t know the answer. D2L discussion forums remove most of these barriers: students can think about what they want to say, they can bring additional resources to the forum, and best of all, there’s no place to hide.

This 2-hour workshop addresses the pedagogy of online discussions: creating good forum assignments, managing forum discussions, and grading forum postings quickly and effectively. It also shows you how to set up discussion forums in D2L.

This workshop is intended for those who are, or expect to be, teaching blended or online courses. A basic working knowledge of D2L is assumed.
