Unit 2: Twitter Chat

Join us for a live Twitter chat on Friday, July 24rd at 10:00 AM CDT. To tune in, simply follow the #NTPoC hashtag activity from 10:00 AM -11:00 AM (CDT), and add your own tweets to the conversation.

Our Twitter chats for the course will be limited to an hour in length, and we’ll use the following format to help make our collaborative conversations cohesive (or at least less chaotic!).
  • We will use 6 different questions as prompts for our chat/discussion. We will start with Q1 and then, after 10 minutes have passed, we will move on to Q2 and then keep repeating that pattern until we have covered all 6 questions.
  • The questions are listed here (so you can think about them in advance), but they will also be posted as tweets (e.g. "Q1- What does good student engagement look like to you?").
  • When you participate, put A1, A2 etc. at the beginning of your tweets. This will make it easier for people to know what questions you’re addressing.
  • Don’t worry about "keeping up" or "getting lost" in the chat. This happens to everyone! We’ll create a Storify version of the entire conversation (like this one from an #OpenTeachingOU Twitter chat in the spring) so that you can go back and catch up on anything you might have missed.
Questions for the Twitter Chat
  • Q1 - What does good student engagement look like to you?
  • Q2 - Who or what should students be engaging with? The Instructor, each other, the content? 
  • Q3 - What is the role of a teacher or facilitator in promoting student engagement? 
  • Q4 - What are examples from your own learning experience that point to the power of connections? 
  • Q5 - How is self-reflection part of engagement? How do we encourage learners all ages to be more self-reflective? 
  • Q6 - How can we encourage students to engage after the course is over?
