By means of an online forum or a blog, this activity gives the students an opportunity to ask clarifying questions and start a discussion regarding subject-related content selected by you as a teacher. This means that they are required to have a relevant discussion in which you may participate, clear up misunderstandings and involve the students in a fruitful academic debate.
The purpose of the activity is to focus on the questions students might have to the subject-related content included in the syllabus or taught in a class session. By encouraging your students to discuss the subject-related content and ask questions, you may guide them to take a more reflective and critical approach to theories and concepts presented in the course. At the same time, this may train their understanding and ability to express themselves in writing regarding the subject and concepts of the course.
