myCourses Webinar: Promoting Engagement through Online Discussions


Would you like to promote interaction in your course? By providing active and social learning opportunities, you can give students an opportunity to engage with the course material and with each other. By creating a space outside of the classroom through the online Discussions tool, students have time to process more deeply, ask questions, debate, and share diverse perspectives.

Attend our one-hour webinar to learn how you can use the Discussions tool in myCourses to promote interaction and engagement in your course.

McGill University is on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. We acknowledge and thank the diverse Indigenous people whose footsteps have marked this territory on which peoples of the world now gather.
