FACULTY PD: Recreating Class Discussion in an Online Environment

In this session, Dr. Shanahan, an assistant professor in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, will guide participants through reasons for designing instruction aimed at recreating student discussion in an online environment. Multiple instructional ideas will be provided that ensure students engage in “discussion” (written and verbal) in ways other than discussion boards. The session will help instructors help their students become more engaged in the course and leave with a deeper understanding of the content.

By the end of this session, you will be able to explain the purposes of designing instruction with opportunities for student discussion of content and apply various technology tools and pedagogical strategies for creating online discussions aimed at increasing student engagement and understanding of content to their own teaching.
