Abstract

A well-designed and structured online course can provide for discussion at high levels of thinking. A debate format was adopted as part of an online contemporary issues in education graduate course. A Lincoln-Douglas debate format was utilized providing a one on one debate for students with one or two students judging the debate using a rubric. Graduate student postings were analyzed for level of thinking according to Bloom's Taxonomy revised. A flow chart and schedule for debate postings were used.
