Discussion and Response Guidelines
Regarding discussions in this course, you are encouraged to initially post early in the unit for each discussion, to allow time for peers to respond. The expectation within the course discussions is to respond to at least two posts by the end of the unit, but it is highly recommended that you extend the dialog further. Responding over multiple days will help stimulate a lively discussion.
