BIBL 715 Discussion
*Includes 4 discussion boards
Discussions are collaborative learning experiences. Therefore, the student is required to provide a thread in response to the provided prompt for each discussion. Each thread must be 500 words and demonstrate course-related knowledge. In addition to the thread, the student is required to reply to one other classmates’ threads. Each reply must be 300 words. The real difference in PhD-level work is that discussions are student-led, rather than professor-led. In the discussion, you will be provide two options, and you will be responsible to answer one of them in depth. You will need to respond to at least one of your classmate’s responses to one of the questions, the professor’s, yours (preferably, if you post a question), or another student’s. You are free to respond to more than one, and it is encouraged, since the more you interact, the more you are able to learn and grow. The PhD students lead the “class” as much as the professor does. It’s what helps set PhD studies apart from other levels of education.
