The Discussion Board (DB) is part of the core of online learning. Classroom discussion in an online environment requires the active participation of students and the instructor to create robust interaction and dialogue. Every student is expected to create an original response to the open-ended DB question as well as engage in dialogue by responding to posts created by others throughout the week. At the end of each unit, DB participation will be assessed based on both level of engagement and the quality of the contribution to the discussion.
At a minimum, each student will be expected to post an original and thoughtful response to the DB question and contribute to the weekly dialogue by responding to at least two other posts from students. The first contribution must be posted before midnight (Central Time) on Friday of each week. Two additional responses are required after Friday of each week. Students are highly encouraged to engage on the Discussion Board early and often, as that is the primary way the university tracks class attendance and participation.
The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow students to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be accepted after the end of each unit.
You and your partner are members of a narcotics street unit. Your partner is eager to make a bust and is very motivated and exuberant. During your street prowl you pick up a local prostitute who your partner immediately shakes down and finds a vial of cocaine in her purse. At the time she was not under arrest and was not asked for consent to the search. Before you can respond he tells her that if she sets up her dealer she will not get busted for the cocaine possession. Your partner then tells her that if the dealer is not holding any cocaine she is to plant the vial of cocaine in his pocket so the police can find it there when they do the arrest.
