Agenda for Global HealthRubric for Participation in a Discussion Board (DB)
Discussion boards (DBs) are what make an online course a course and not just an independent study.
DBs are very important for showing that the learner has met the expected course level outcomes.
Collaboration between classmates and the teacher in the DB is an important part of online learning, and the course expects it.
The teacher will decide if there are any exceptions to the following DB rubric.
The goal of a DB is to get people to think critically in a scholarly way.
Critical thinking involves coming up with solutions, applying them to real-world problems, testing, debating, and defending solutions that are based on evidence.
Critical thinking is not just repeating what you were assigned to read. An important part of the DB is research on the literature done outside of it.
Posts need to have something to say. This means that answers like “I agree” or “great post” do not meet the criteria for a good grade.

The first posts for each discussion question (DQ) are due by the following Saturday.
The first post must be an answer to the DQ question, not a comment on other posts. Each DB’s first post must also include at least three citations that have been reviewed by experts in the field.
Citations must come from outside sources, and each week, you can only use one citation from a course reading.
Even though the discussion board tool makes it hard to use APA formatting (like hanging indents), all posts must have the necessary parts of an in-text citation and list of references.
