Discussion Assignment

Sharpen students critical thinking through debate, peer review and self-reflection

How does it work?

The Discussion Assignment tool allows teachers to structure a meaningful online discussion. Students are asked to participate in the online discussion and to review the input of peers. In a more open environment, students can comment and upvote on all input. Once there is enough activity, teachers participate and guide the discussion.

A reflection moment is incorporated to increase a deeper understanding of students.

Tool Features

The tool provides detailed analytics on student participation in discussion assignments. The teacher can observe which student participated in discussions and see the engagement of their input received by their peers.

Teachers have extensive filtering and sorting options within the tool. They can quickly find relevant discussion input based on the tool's wide-range filtering and sorting options.

Teachers can combine discussion assignments with mandatory peer argument review. This way, students can receive formative feedback on their argumentation from their peers and get the learning benefits of both pedagogies.

The tool enables students to write a reflection on the reviews they get from their teacher on their discussion. This helps students to understand their improvement points better.

Pedagogical value

Teaching value

Discussion Assignment allows teachers to replicate a physical classroom and leverage the interactions in an online environment. Online discussions can help to teach students discussion and writing skills.

Learning value

Organizing an open-ended discussion will sharpen students’ thinking and argumentation. In Discussion Assignment, the flow of debate is organized in such a way that it also includes the learning benefits of peer review and self-reflection. 

The AI-tool Automated Feedback on writing gives students instant feedback on the quality of academic writing in assignments, thesis, and other deliverables. Students improve their academic writing skills by receiving direct in-line feedback, resulting in more permanent and actionable learning. As importantly, the tool also reduces the time spent on assignment review for teachers, allowing them to reallocate their time on providing feedback on the content rather than the form.
