Discussion Post Assignment for Outside Engagement

Exemplar thumbnail


Many times students request extra credit and as faculty members, we struggle to provide that. This is a weekly discussion posting on Blackboard based on the face to face lecture for that week. Having a discussion post creates an environment for students to engage freely outside the classroom. At times, I have also used this to engage students during class time and have them bring out their electronic device answer the discussion posting for attendance purposes and extra credit for that day!
