Speaking Their Language: Using Discord to Connect with Students Online

Discord is a popular program for textual and visual communication. Many students are familiar with this tool as it is popular among gamers. Leveraging this familiarity, the platform becomes an opportunity for faculty to engage with students in a comfortable medium while also offering peer learning opportunities for the students as well. This workshop will discuss how to set up Discord for a class, best practices, and tips and tricks for successful integration.
