AFTERTHOUGHTS

“How? Who? What’s the least I can do?”

What’s the least I can do to support constructive, deliberative discussion in higher education on some of our most controversial and important challenges? (e.g., affirmative action admission practices/policies, free speech in courses, political activities on campus, …)

Under what circumstances might an online deliberative discussion actually happen?  Be effective?  


Preparative Survey

SURVEY INTRO

Very brief description of NIFI "deliberative discussion" forum platform.

2.  To-be-scheduled-in-2019

SURVEY PART II

The NIFI Forum Platform does not support audio or video participation.  However, we will be using it in conjunction with Zoom, so we will have both audio and video participation capabilities.  

When you consider using online "deliberative discussions" for your own purposes, for which specific kinds of activities (e.g., discussion of ratings) would you most prefer to be able to offer audio, video, or neither?

1.  Audio participation?

1a. Optional:  Why?

2.  Audio AND video participation?

3.  Neither audio nor video participation!?

3a. Optional:  Why?
