Part 1: Introduction
By Jennifer Bunk, SIOP Blogger
I was going to omit the question mark for this post’s title, but I realized that would be too presumptuous. There are lots of advantages to using discussion boards for teaching, but there are disadvantages as well. Because this post ended up being a tad longer than I had expected, I’m going to break it up into three parts. In Part 1, I’ll introduce discussion boards and how to effectively incorporate them into your classes. In Parts 2 and 3, I’ll discuss their advantages and disadvantages, respectively.
