Years of research show that building in opportunities for discussion promotes participation and collaboration for students in both face-to-face and online learning environments. How can we ensure that students are learning as well as participating and collaborating in online discussions? This session will focus on rubrics as tools for promoting quality online discussions. Find out how to construct effective discussion rubrics, view actual discussion rubrics used successfully in online courses, and apply an example rubric to your own teaching practices.
