Going for Contributions

Just read a really good article regarding the difference between participation and contribution.  Read it here:  http://www.facultyfocus.com/articles/teaching-professor-blog/student-comments-moving-from-participation-to-contribution/

It's not important that students are participating.  What we should be striving for is students who are contributing!  What is the quality of the participation?  What does their participation demonstrate about their depth of understanding?

Just food for thought on this rainy Wednesday morning!  Enjoy!
