What are the principles of scholarly discussion in an online environment? How does this differ from a friendly conversation or social network? How can we ensure that our course discussions remain scholarly?
For this first discussion, remember that a scholar is defined as (according to Merriam-Webster dictionary): a person who has studied a subject for a long time and knows a lot about it or an intelligent and well-educated person who knows a particular subject very well. Think about how you would present information as a scholar in our classroom when answering this question! I look forward to your thoughts here!
