I teach in the Early Childhood Department and have recently started encouraging students to think outside of the typical question and answer verbal responses by encouraging the use of social media and interactive apps for ticket out discussions. I would love suggestions from others using this format.

Best Teaching Strategy Question

I work in higher education and have a class of 46 students in a foundation of nursing theory class. The students vary in age from 19-35 and I can see differences in work ethic and in the ability of the older students to remain focused.

I understand that wikis and blogs can be used to host media sites but then my question goes to... How to collect for the course as far as compensation goes.  Once paid how do I get the student lined up to begin the course?

I am enjoying this course so far and look forward to learning more
