Theory, Behavior, and Change

The primary group interactions will occur in our online discussion forums. Proactive, meaningful class participation is essential to maximizing course potential and to enable the Instructor to fully evaluate your comprehension of course content. Please know that I am much more interested in quality than quality. For each 250-500 word post, include at least two external citations (a website that you found especially helpful, an article, a YouTube video that relates to a topic we are discussing). My expectation is that you participate in each online discussion forum with a minimum of three posts, including your initial post and two responses to other in class posts. Your response to the other students must be a minimum of 4 compete sentences.You are, of course, welcome to write more and always expected to conduct yourself in a professional and courteous manner at all times.
