Dr. Linda Putchinski in UCF's College of Business Administration has three rules for creating discussions prompts:
- Rule 1: Make the prompt relevant to your course content.
- Rule 2: Make the prompt current, such as something recently in the news.
- Rule 3: Add a twist like an ethical twist to the prompt.
In addition to these rules, Dr. Putchinski frequently adds in learner choice by allowing students to select from two discussions topics.
