For this discussion I am going to give you an opportunity to participate as an original focus group for a research project I am conducting.
I am interested in exploring the question of: “What is the relationship between discussion questions and learning outcomes in online courses?”
There are three tasks for your post here:
1. What is your personal definition of “learning” as applied to “what you learn” in an online course.
2. Please indicate on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest, “How useful have discussion questions been in facilitating your learning of the subject matter in your previous online courses.”
3. Please provide me with a short narrative describing your experience of discussion questions and your “learning” in your previous online courses
