Elevating Expectations for Online Discussion Board Postings at the Graduate Level
This presentation will address American Psychological Association, APA style, initial and classmate (peer) responses, timeliness, and a rubric for online Discussion Board Postings at the Graduate Level. These elements are components of practices to elevate expectations of student postings. The results of using these practices include acquiring higher order thinking and research skills that expand knowledge on the course topic. The discussion board postings become better learning and sharing forums more focused on objectives of the course. In addition, current articles on the topic will be shared.
