The Learning Technology Center (LTC) is pleased to invite faculty and instructional staff to attend the next free session in the Snackable Series “Solving Teaching Challenges One Byte at a Time.” In the “Snackable Series” sessions, a specific learning technology is spotlighted. The next session will be held September 18th and 19th and focuses on utilizing discussions in D2L.
Discussions in D2L are a form of asynchronous interaction between the members of a class. When designed properly, discussions build a learning community, encourage critical thinking, and help your students apply the material they are learning. This session will introduce you to some best practices in designing and facilitating discussion in D2L and will include sample discussion prompts you can adapt for your course.
The dates, times, and location for this snackable are as follows:
Wednesday, September 18, 2013: Noon to 1 p.m.
Thursday, September 19, 2013: 11 a.m. to Noon
