Participation Requirements

Participating in classroom discussion is paramount to the learning experience. Participating in the weekly discussions allows students and instructors to share experiences, investigate complicated subject matter, share expertise, and examine the content from new perspectives. The qualitative participation requirements are: Follow-up responses to classmates’ initial answers or responses that integrate course theories with a practical application of the subject, offering a personal observation or experience, or referencing real-world examples, current events, or presenting current research on the topic. Classroom interaction demonstrating deeper or broader thoughts beyond rephrasing what the textbook has presented on the topic. Responses encouraging further discussion and ongoing dialogue with other students and the instructor in the class. Asking additional, relevant questions about the week’s topic. Communications that are presented in a professional and supportive manner, and with respectful tone. Participation can be earned only by posting substantive, quality messages to fellow classmates and the instructor in the main forum of the classroom. Certain courses may have alternative participation requirements. Students are encouraged to review the course syllabus and consult with the faculty member prior to the course start.

The participation expectations in this class are:

  • Number of Required Substantive Posts Each Day: 2
