FLO MicroCourse: Write a compelling discussion prompt

In asynchronous courses there are as many ways to launch a discussion as there are topics to discuss. Even if the activity itself is anchored in carefully selected background reading and resources, the words and media you use to invite learners to engage can be what make your course active and memorable.

Think about a collaborative discussion you would like to launch (any topic!). Write a compelling discussion prompt. Then invite others to comment on their willingness to engage based on your springboard tactics.
