Project Final Report

The three Debating Science courses took place throughout the fall of 2007 and 2008 on the Online Deliberation Center (ODC). One of the goals of this project is to test the ODC as an educational tool. Student evaluations were conducted after the workshop and again after the semester long course each year of the project. During the first year of this project we gained many insights into how to make the ODC a useful educational tool. During the second year we  implemented and test many new features and instructional techniques.
