Discussion Forums

Most weeks this semester the class will hold Discussion Forums, which are student-lead discussions over a reading or video game taking most of the class period. To prepare for these sessions, class members will read an assigned text or play a specific game (usually alternating each week). Students will then post a critical response to the reading/game. The readings and games assigned for Discussion Forums will take time to digest, so students are encouraged to engage with them as soon as they are assigned.

Our first Discussion Forum will take place on Sept. 6. To prepare, students should read the posted excerpt from Steven Johnson's Everything Bad is Good for You. Then, students should post their critical response using the Discussion Forum #1 form.

Usually Discussion Forums are interesting, productive, and even fun. I look forward to hearing your ideas.
