How to Develop Effective Discussion Questions

How to Develop Effective Discussion Questions | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

"A distinguishing feature of online education verses the face-to-face environment are class discussions. Face-to-face discussions are typically spontaneous interplay with the minority of students being actively involved, haphazard in their preparation, with the appearance of mostly the verbal-oriented and self-confident members of a class. Discussions are often a presentation technique to avoid lecture lethargy or sleepiness, and are not considered a prime facilitator of the education process

 

In an asynchronous online environment, discussion questions are planned and students and faculty respond with considered answers. Faculty carefully craft questions to fit content and student needs. Respondents, both students and faculty, can take the time to carefully research and develop their responses. Therefore, the achieved learning from online discussions is potentially much greater than in a face-to-face environment."

 

This is a three part series that will help any online practicioner to better understand the complexities of writing discussion prompts and facilitating threaded discussion.  This is a university level research effort with a solid bibliography.  Well worth reading! ~ Dennis T. O'Connor

Edutopia Resource Guide: Mastering Online Discussion Board Facilitation

Discussion boards, or threaded discussions, are one of the most commonly used tools in online teaching. Discussion  forums provide the ability for asynchronous discussion to occur over a period of time. The ability to learn asynchronously is one of the primary benefits of online learning. Students are able to reflect upon their ideas before sharing them with the class, leading to more reflective responses and in-depth learning.


This guide has been designed to provide some practical suggestions to assist you in making the most of this versatile tool. A number of topics have been addressed, including: facilitation tips, content area suggestions, time management strategies and much more.
