Creating discussions for my online course

This week, I created discussion posts for the online portion of my blended course. It wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be. I had to ensure that the discussion questions were broad enough to facilitate discussion on various topics within the parameters of the modules, but narrow enough to prevent too much vagueness. I also wanted to ensure that students are grasping the key concepts in the modules and can use that information to apply their knowledge to real-life situations.Banner_Backgrounds_questions Another thing I worked on was aligning dates of exams with the discussions. Right now, the dates are imaginary, but I wanted to make sure I could figure out how to change dates around easily. I want to add links to the discussions in the weekly modules (right now the discussions have their own folder). If I can’t do that, I’ll move all the discussions into the modules for easy access. Working on my project this week was fun!

I'm a dental hygiene instructor in San Antonio, TX. I want to share my passion for dental hygiene with other hygienists and create a place where hygiene educators can meet and collaborate. I received my A.S. Dental Hygiene from Southwestern College in San Diego, CA in 2003. After ten years of clinical practice, I returned to school to earn my B.S. Dental Hygiene from Northern Arizona University. I'm currently working on my Master's in Education with an emphasis in Digital Learning and Leading from Lamar University in Texas. I have an amazing husband and three kids: Matt (15), Chloe (10), and Silas (21 months). When I'm not fighting plaque and gingivitis, I like to hang out with friends and family (a little BBQ here and there), garden, play with the kiddos, travel, and remodel our house (a never-ending project!). I ride horses, speak a little French, and I'm a great shot with a bow and arrow (must be the Cherokee in me!). Most of all, I love to learn and share ideas. Thanks for stopping by!
