Discussion Board

A discussion board for Journal Club is available here:

https://catalyst.uw.edu/gopost/board/jbakker/29376/

 

It can be used in many ways:

· Weekly leaders can post questions or comments before class to guide our reading (and the in-class discussion).

· People can continue discussions beyond class time.

· Folk that have to be in the field or are sick can still participate.

· Folk can post relevant articles.
