Question: Dr. Lebron, what is a high-quality response?

Great question! Well, a high-quality response provides new information that is worth anyone’s time to read it. Provides something new for us to learnand comes from the unique way you think and experience the world. It is authentically and respectfully you.

For example, a high-quality response is sharing what you agree with or may disagree with and why. Further, you explore ideas the student presented by thinking through other examples/ reasons for the opposite view as well as the view you hold; thus, looking at both sides of the arguments/suggestions. This technique is how effective leaders in a “virtual” environment have to build trust that leads to high-performance. You show that you have taken the time and respect to listen to and respond to the ideas and risks the student too. You present illustrative examples to make your point clear- remember with innovation, these are “new ideas” other people may not have yet experienced, and can better understand through the technique of providing examples (based on your experience and/or that you have read).

Question… But Dr. Lebron, what about what a response that is “not high quality” response post?

Hmmmm.. Well let me think a high-quality response is not the following.

  • Tobi’s initial post: I like bread.
  • Student’s response post: I like bread too.

Yeah… bread is outside the scope of the class but thank you for sharing your views on bread.:)
