Title:Rapid resilience: Use of discussion circles in the time of covid-19
Author(s):Vardell, Emily; Trembach, Stan; Sutton, Sarah W.; Smith, Andrew J. M.
Subject(s):Discussion circles
Literature circles
Student engagement
Synchronous discussion
Abstract:This paper describes the successful use of Discussion Circles to support student learning and promote continuing student engagement when our previously hybrid delivery MLS program courses were forced to move to entirely online delivery in Spring 2020 due to COVID-19. Although Discussion Circles, or literature circles as they are sometimes called, are not a new pedagogical technique, the use to which we put them in this unique situation is worthy of note, as are the outcomes of their use. Outcomes are described and observations are shared from the perspective of faculty both experienced in and new to hybrid course delivery and the use of Discussion Circles as well as the student experience of Discussion Circles.
