• Using A Community Table in Your Online Course

  • Thank you for stopping by A Community Table's portfolio page. We've created this space for faculty members who are interested in incorporating A Community Table into a course this Spring. There are several ways to integrate A Community Table. For example, you might:

    1) Center A Community Table as a capstone assignment 

    • Students facilitate their own conversations with community members external to the class

    2) Use A Community Table as a framework for a class discussion

    • The faculty member facilitates a class discussion using the A Community Table framework
    • Students participate in small group discussions using A Community Table prompts
    • Students participate in an asynchronous discussion thread using A Community Table prompts

    3) Employ A Community Table as a formative and/or summative reflection activity

    • A Community Table prompts are used in sequential writing assignments to document and deepen learning
    • The faculty member employs A Community Table in week 9 or week 10 as a summative activity to recap and close the course
  • Pedagogy and Practice Resources
