Educators in Higher Education must examine how innovative web-based technology can be used to facilitate the learning outcomes of the courses they teach. “Cat got your Tongue? An Analysis of Student Engagement on Public and Private Online Forums” reports on a scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) project that the author initiated in her classroom in spring 2008. The author describes the degree to which aspiring school leaders’ engaged in discourse online on two popular and influential forums for online discourse, namely: the discussion board feature of Blackboard - a course management system - and weblogs. In addition, the author evaluates the degree to which study participants’ discourse contained retrospective, anticipatory and contemporaneous reflection. The author concludes with a description of the challenges faced and the steps that can be taken to harness the pedagogical benefits of discussion board and weblogs as tools to promote critical thinking and reflective practice.
