Discussion and Participation Guidelines
Weekly Class Discussion Participation
Weekly discussion participation with your colleagues students and the Instructor for each question occurs over a minimum of three different days. You are required to engage in discussions with a minimum of three different colleagues. To be sure you are addressing all of the Learning Objectives for the week, respond to colleagues who selected different questions than you did for their initial post. Each response should be 100–125 words. One-line responses will not earn any points.
After your initial post, engage with colleagues and the Instructor in clarifying and mastering any concepts not fully understood. Points to explore in the first discussion topic could include:
How is the concept(s) used in your current or past place of employment and/or career?
How does the concept(s) relate to other concepts in the Learning Objectives?
Why is it important for you to know and master these concept(s)?
