Discussion Technique: Question, Answer, Comment
At our faculty workshops today, Steve Ehrmann from the TLT Group (http://www.tltgroup.org/) shared a number of useful ideas about online teaching and discussion, but one specific discussion technique seemed to connect well with our faculty. For each week/unit, each student asked one question about the course content, answered another student's question, and commented about a different student's answer. Not only is this Question-Answer-Comment technique easy to grasp and implement, but it also has students thinking about course content from a variety of perspectives and cognitive levels.
