James Hodgins promotes student engagement by requiring students to ask open-ended questions
James Hodgins feels students in his advertising course are much more engaged in the content since requiring them to ask open-ended questions about the course materials on Packback.
“I feel like [students are] really engaged in the content…and just the overall discussion levels have been a lot higher than what I have seen in my previous classes,” says Hodgins.

“I’ve seen a lot of success already through what my students have been posting. I’ve been seeing the quality and engagement of the discussions going really well. They seem to be getting a lot out of the discussions, going a lot deeper into the course content. And I’ve been trying to grab a lot of the questions that have really stood out to me, and I’m going to bring those back into the classroom. Both to highlight the quality of the questions as well as to get a larger discussion going with all the students…I also try to give them prompts with each lecture, kind of tell them what kind of might be good to discuss and what kind of questions they could ask about the content.”
