Participation Guidelines

Actively participate in discussions. To do this you should create a substantive post for each of the discussion topics. Each post should demonstrate your achievement of the participation criteria. In addition, you should also respond to the posts of at least two of your fellow learners for each discussion question-unless the discussion instructions state otherwise. These responses to other learners should also be substantive posts that contribute to the conversation by asking questions, respectfully debating positions, and presenting supporting information relevant to the topic. Also, respond to any follow-up questions the instructor directs to you in the discussion area.

To allow other learners time to respond, you are encouraged to post your initial responses in the discussion area by midweek. Comment to other learners’ posts are due by Sunday at 11:59 p.m. (Central time zone).
