Abstract

This study evaluates the impact of Lunch and Learn Sessions on faculty members' use of Discussion Board in Blackboard. A survey was designed and administered to 87 faculty members who attended the training sessions. Interviews were also used to clarify the findings of the questionnaire. Majority of the respondents teach in engineering schools. The findings suggest that the Lunch and Learn approach has worked and it helped to increase the number of faculty members in using Discussion Board. More importantly, the levels of usage of Discussion Board by faculty members have moved from lower to more advanced levels after the training. The study also identified six factors that influence the faculty members' use of Discussion Board.
