How can a student with a health impairment maintain participation in classroom discussions when she is frequently absent?
There are several electronic options to consider. Online discussions can facilitate communication between students. Consider having students post their work on the web and allow peer review and discussion of papers, assignments, and lab results. A few ground rules and participation requirements can be set to keep the discussion relevant and active. In addition, email exchanges with professionals, students on other campuses, and community members can extend learning beyond your campus.
