How can we help the teacher to understand online discussion—what variables are operating? What motives and attitudes are in play? What should the facilitator know and do to aid discussion in teaching online? What works and what doesn’t? What facilitates discussion online, what encourages collaborative meaning-making, what encourages productive, supportive, engaged discussion, and what fosters critical thinking.
