Overview

Overview

The challenge

The solution

Provide a guest speaker for students in a fully online, asynchronous course.

Make it easy for both students and the guest speaker: No separate software.

Keep the promise of ‘time and location flexible’ for online courses at RU: Respect students’ schedules, allowing Q&A over a period of a week (a module).

Don’t overwhelm the guest speaker.

Choose a guest speaker who had graduated from the MATD program.

Example of success.

Example of ‘giving back’ to the program.

Familiar with Blackboard.

Example of continuing our outreach to our graduates.

Has one week to answer questions and ‘interact’ with students.

Lessons learned and caveats

Lessons Learned and Caveats

  • Students rated this as a very useful experience.

  • Tell students to ‘Add a Thread’ to add their questions.

    • First student add his question as a response to the guest speaker’s ‘Hello’ post. Other students followed his lead. This caused some confusion for the speaker.

  • These were graduate students.

  • It’s an introductory, core course so we didn’t focus on a specific topic or topics.
