Class participation is an important expectation of this course. Students are expected to offer comments, questions, and replies to the discussion questions that have been posed for each module as well as to classmate postings. Students are expected to actively participate in EACH module’s discussion EACH week throughout the course. The faculty role is as an observer and facilitator. I will be reading all messages and I will participate in the discussion as appropriate. Initial postings should be done no later than Tuesday night at 11:59 p.m. CT while replies to classmate postings should be made no later than Friday night at 11:59 p.m. CT in order to be considered on time. Students may work ahead on the discussion boards but posting on past week’s boards will not allow for stimulating discussions with your classmates.
