- Keep a consistent journal
- Actually respond to the questions
- Answer the questions thoughtfully and fully
- Think beyond the obvious
- Write out relevant thoughts and questions you might have
- Use scholarly resources: articles from a database, textbooks, professional journals, reports, etc
- Have a variety of sources: i.e. documentaries, interviews with professors, etc
- Research the topic from multiple perspectives (i.e. social, historical, educational, global, etc)
- Keep track of where your sources came from and keep a list for your own reference
- Don't look for obvious answers; dig deep
- Use whatever method you normally use to research, just make sure to do it!
- Share your most relevant/important information
- Have a clear idea of what you want to say and speak concisely
- I have very short attention span - keep it brief
- Organize your thoughts. Generally the format should be
- What's the topic?
- Why are you sharing this information?
- What are your conclusions?
- What are questions to look into for further exploration?
- Check back frequently for new posts and respond to others' posts/questions
- Post at least three times a week
- Contribute to the discussion. Don't just say "yes I agree." Explain your opinion.
- Refer back to Sharing Information general format (SIGF) when posting research for discussion
- Spend at least an hour a day doing research or contributing to discussion
- Keep track of your sources and where they came from
- Annotate your sources. Keep track of pertinent information and which source it came from
- You don't have to read a whole 90 page dissertation. Use section headers to find the relevant information
- Reflect on the usefulness of your sources as you go along. Refer to the SIGF for an idea of what to reflect on
