To earn participation points, engage in class discussions within your Outlier discussion community. Communication with your Outlier classmates, Outlier tutors, and Success Advisors will take place in your Discussion Community. There are a few ways you can score high in participation for your course:
- Ask a question you are struggling with or found very useful.
- Answer one of your peers’ questions by starting a thread under their question.
- Respond to weekly discussion prompts posted by the Success Team.
Please give examples, share resources, post screenshots or videos in the discussion threads to support your thoughts and ideas.
Explaining concepts reinforces your own understanding of the material. When you actively engage in conversations, you learn by reflecting on the subject matter. Sharing your ideas and perspectives with others, and questioning and thinking critically about responses will also support your learning as you move through the course!
