Motivating students to engage in discussion online is a challenge. Fortunately, a number of discussion and collaboration tools are available to help structure these activities. We will explore available tools that mimic traditional butchers paper and pens, round tables and world cafes. This session will be useful for tutoring and lecturing staff.

About HASS/BEL Teaching Seminar Series

The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS) Teaching Seminars have been developed in collaboration with the Faculty of Business, Economics and Law (BEL). These topics have been chosen in response to the most recent HASS and BEL Teaching Pulse Survey results. Some topics are similar to past seminars, however, it is clear from the Teaching Pulse Survey data that these topics remain a challenge for many of us. We will showcase different presenters from HASS and BEL who are using a range of innovative techniques alongside tried and true strategies.
