FACULTY DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS
Fall 2014 iTECH Coffee Breaks
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.
