Discussion Boards Can and Should Be More Than Busy Work

Recorded on Monday, March 9th 1:00-2:15 pm

If you feel like discussion boards are more busy work for you and your students than they are helpful, come to this webinar and hear from faculty who are happy with how they are working for them and their students. 

The session will be broken in three sections--Tips & Strategies, Faculty Panel, Q&A-- and will be recorded for later viewing. The Drop-in Working Hour on Tuesday, March 10th, will be devoted to this topic as well.
