Round Table - Let's Talk About Discussion Forums
The typical use of a discussion forum in online and hybrid education can be described as a correspondence process in which learners supposedly discuss a topic over the course of a week. In many cases, this experience is typified by an initial post by Wednesday and two replies to peers by Sunday evening. Having been a learner in these kinds of discussion forums and having a respect for healthy discourse, I continue to research and reflect on the subject of discourse in discussion forums. I believe that discussion forums as a practice in online and hybrid education need to be revised for the sake of discourse. If the learners are meant to engage one another in critical discourse, we need to cultivate space and practice that will engage them in discourse.

We will share foolproof, quick, easy to use arts- based strategies to engage all students in learning and activate their creativity.

Arts Integration has the power to maximize student engagement, foster creativity for both students and teachers, improve instructional practices by stimulating higher level thinking and champion profound school improvement.

Round Table - Historical Movies as Educational Tools: Balancing Factual Accuracy and Entertainment Value
In this round table discussion, I would lead with a series of examples of movies based on historical real-life events, with a focus on incidents where a trade-off was made between facts and entertainment value. What I like to discuss with everyone is: if historical movies have to make a trade-off between facts and entertainment, can they really be used as educational tools? Conversely, what is our barrier for accuracy if we would like to use them to teach students about the past? Finally, is there a danger to using such movies for educational purposes.
