Throughout the semester, there will be assigned readings and videos and you will be asked to participate in discussions offering your reactions and opinions. Always, you are asked to participate in these discussion with clarity and thoughtfulness.
For clarity, the topic will be labeled with the semester week. For example “Week 1: Proper Online Discussion Techniques”.
You will have one full week (Thursday 2:30– Thursday 2:30) to share your thoughts. This will be counted towards your Participation Grade.
Guidelines for participation:
- DO READ the whole thread.
- Comment on the question after checking out any materials provided.
- Don’t repeat other students.
- Do reply to other students and build on their ideas.
Good Participation is to comment at least 2x per discussion. Once at the beginning and once at the end, after reading the thread so your comments are relevant.
For this particular discussion, you can ask a question, make a suggestion or just say that you understand.
