Engaging Online Students with the "Discussion" Tool
Lunch and Learn Series
Dr. David McNeil
Department of English
David McNeil has taught at Dalhousie since 1984. He has used digital resources in his classes since they were first made available in the early 90s. Professor McNeil has taught online since 2010; specifically, he likes to offer an online section simultaneously with a regular section. Since exchanging views is a critical component of any humanities class (he teaches English Literature), he has developed some strategies on how to make better use of the "Discussion" tool to engage students.
This is the second session in the Lunch and Learn Series for faculty and administrative staff working in the online environment.
