Whiteboard discussion:

  2. How have you been feeling about the COVID-19 pandemic? (Mood/Emotion)

Topic development[edit | edit source]

  1. Quick poll of who has:
    1. a Wikiversity user name?
    2. signed up to a book chapter topic?
    3. started editing?
  2. Facilitate a roundtable discussion, based on each person's book chapter interests and progress. Ask each student to share their name and the topic they've chosen or what topic areas they are interested in. Depending on each person's stage of development, briefly discuss, explain topic further (or invite student to explain), suggest related areas, or enquire further etc. e.g.,
    1. What chapter topic(s) are you interested in?
    2. If unsure, what are your motivation and emotion interests? What are you most curious about?
    3. How to propose a topic
