Get your "lecture freak on" using JiTT part of MnSCU Partnership:PKAL-MnSCU Activities
This JiTT activity will allow instructors to engage students prior to lecture by utilizing discussion boards in a course management system. This will be accomplished by asking questions of students and having students ask their own questions related to the specific content. During lecture, the instructor will use answers to the questions as a spring-board to content coverage. Following lecture, students revisit questions selected by the instructor to allow assessment of student learning through use of instructional technologies.
