Teaching through Discussions with Jessica Harris, part 2

Submitted by eduplessis on Thu, 03/22/2018 - 3:14pm

In part 2 of our 3-part video series “Teaching through Discussion Forums,” SRJC faculty Jessica Harris shares a peer feedback discussion forum in Canvas in which students post research proposals for her online class, “Introduction to Information Literacy.”

  • First, she explains how and why she has students submit their work on discussions forums rather than as traditional homework assignments.
  • Then, she describes the benefits of having student work visible to the entire class.
  • She also explains how her workload has shifted from grading to interacting in discussions and how this has strengthened her presence in the course.

This video is 10 minutes.
