Typically, first-year students, lots of non-majors.

Innovation:

In order to enhance active learning and discussion in class, I used a variety of "virtual" discussion opportunities. Students participated in ten online discussion forums over the course of the semester. Each discussion was developed further in class through small group activities.

Comments:

My webpage presentation outlines the background and objectives for this innovation, as well as provides an overview of the process, example discussion forums, and assessment results.
