Asynchronous discussion boards can be a site of active learning and participation. This session will introduce strategies for creating asynchronous discussions to support meaningful student learning, including:

  • creating discussion board activities that generate actual discussion
  • how to structure the discussion board to scaffold participation
  • options for going beyond text-based discussion, and
  • how to encourage synthesis and reflection post-discussion

As we explore these strategies, we’ll talk through the technical aspects of setting up Canvas discussion boards to create whole class and small group discussions. We’ll look at grading settings, setting up a peer review discussion, assigning discussions to groups, embedding media in discussions, and other settings that can be used to support productive discussion.
