FACULTY DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS
Fall 2014 iTE(a)CH Coffee Breaks
Break 1: Monday, September 1, 2014 at 2:30pm in LARC 236
As with every technological tool that is intended to serve as a learning tool, Discussion Boards must provide pedagogical meaning. Stop by LARC 236 and let’s discuss over a coffee and pastries how Discussion Boards can allow students to contextualize knowledge by supporting the creation of connections between previous content, new content and the students collective and individual experiences.
This informal talk will provide you with the essential steps to implement a Discussion Board for your course in Blackboard. Also, it is intended to be a place for open debate and discussion about what are the characteristics and educational contexts in which Discussion Boards bring the most added pedagogical value.
