Managing Online Discussions with a Participation Portfolio (Innovative Practice)

Thursday, January 22 | 9:00AM–10:00AM | Grand Sierra Ballroom I
Session Type: Professional Development
If you want students to use online discussions, how do you avoid initiating every thread or simply counting all their replies (including their "I agree" posts)? By defining and rewarding substantive Q&A-and requiring students to submit an online "participation portfolio" of their best work-students will take responsibility for discussions and reduce your burden in assessing them.
