Lin did a presentation for 15 faculty members at Seton Hall a few weeks ago titled, "Building Online Community Through Dialog." I think it has some interesting implications for any type of Social Scholar software we might build. For instance, how can we rethink the current array of online dialogue tools to better support the type of networked communication we are envisioning for Social Scholar?
The PowerPoint slides also included some helpful strategies for facilitating online discussion boards. Is this something we should offer to TC faculty/instructors in the form of a workshop or online resource?
