The survey in this class seems to suggest that
  • there should be a sizeable faculty audience for my work on this project
  • not many faculty are extending discussion beyond one post
  • the discussion board is mainly used to facilitate discussion in class rather than on the board itself
  • thus, the discussion board is being used more as a bulletin board
  • more teaching about how to post is necessary
  • I will be advocating more use of the discussion board than common now
  • students see room for improving current practice
  • students highly value teachers who foster class interaction
  • however, affirmation that other students play an important role in individual learning may be "lip-service"
  • for community does not seem to be on student radar screens when asked to describe what college is like
  • it is not clear that students are experiencing what I think of as a learning community
