Discussions with Socrates
Discussion forums are a big part of an online students learning journey, but they are only as effective as the group of students choose to make them. We can do our best to write thought provoking prompts that promote critical thinking and deep dialogue, but unless students engage in these forums, they are simply another assignment to complete. As the teaching professor, your engagement within the forums can make a big difference in student engagement and learning. Join Dr. Lynn Lease as she shares the Socratic Method and questions you can ask students to promote critical thinking, engagement, and deep dialogue.
