      What are your tips for boosting peer-to-peer engagement in asynchronous courses? In particular, how to build up to and extend use of discussion boards?

      Have you used an assignment that has students build on their peers’ discussion board posts?

      I use a variation of talking stick. As such, the last discussant recognizes the next, who can respond next or pass. If pass is selected, the discussant who selects pass recognizes the next discussant. Another practice that I encourage and model is translanguaging. Discussants are encouraged to style shift and draw from their whole semiotic repertoires (e.g., different registers, varieties of named and unnamed languages, emojis, memes, video and audio recordings, etc.).
