Engaging Learners in Online Discussions: Webinar

Thursday, January 31, 2019
12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Do you miss those lively debates that used to take place in your physical classroom? Are you frustrated with assigning discussions in your online course where students don’t seem interested in participating?  This webinar will address strategies to help you design and implement asynchronous discussions within your course in order to better engage both you and your students and improve the quality of learning in discussion activities.  Some topics will include: setting expectations for discussion activities, suggestions for instructor presence in discussions, writing effective prompts, and using discussions as a vehicle for deeper learning.

Facilitated by WPI’s Instructional Designers, Caitlin Keller and Valerie Smedile-Rifkin

Sponsored by WPI Online Programs and The Morgan Teaching and Learning Center
