Start Small: Tips for Fostering Effective Class Discussion

Reinert Center typeset_icon_2014_solid_082214If you’re looking for small ways to enhance class discussions – whether in online or on-ground courses – you might find our two newest resource guides of interest.

The tips presented in the Fostering Discussion in Face-to-Face Classes may apply to a wide range of discussion types.  Those provided in Fostering Discussion in Online Classes are more tied to the online environment (though they may, of course, be useful for face-to-face classes that incorporate online discussions).

The Reinert Center’s Resource Guides are short (usually one-to-two page) PDFs that provide a few tips and resources for additional information.  If you have ideas for new Resource Guide topics, let us know by completing this form (LINK).
