Step 1 Post your introductory information.
Post the following to the discussion board:
- Your name
- Brief background
- Your profession
- What you hope to gain from this course
Step 2Read and respond to other students’ posts.
Read other students’ posts and respond to at least two of them. Consider the following questions for responses but feel free to be creative and come up with your own ideas. Remember that this is your chance to get to know each other, which can greatly improve your mutual learning later in the course.
- Are there any other students in the course with a similar background? Who are these students, and what similarities do you share?
- Would you like to know more about any of the professions other students listed? Which professions, and why?
- Were there any comments about what other students hope to gain from the course that you had not thought of?
