Understanding the Instructor’s Role in Facilitating Online Discussions - Faculty Focus | Faculty Focus | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
As I reviewed course evaluations after my first year of online teaching, an unexpected theme emerged: several students mentioned they wished I had been a bigger part of their discussions, primarily so they would know if they were on the right track. I naively assumed my silence during group discussion would be taken as evidence by students that their discussions were right on target, but this was not the case at all. Students needed more reassurance, especially since I was asking them to take very big risks in terms of explaining their understanding of a content area that was often new and challenging for them..

I really try to handle real controversy in a person-to-person way. Sometimes with on-line courses this might not be possible. Here arre some other recommended methods. Video conferencing is another way to document and connect for a virtual person-to-person resolution of conflict.
