Discussion Board Submission and Responses
Discussion Boards help build a learning community in an online course. Asking questions, making suggestions, encouraging colleagues, these things build community. Having a rubric lets each learner know ahead of time what is expected from their contribution. I'm not looking for a book report as much as I'm looking for analysis and calls to action. My Rubric for Discussion Board Submissions is designed to cultivate critical thinking skills and sharing of ideas with the learning community.
