 What is Substantive Interaction?  The School of Business is committed to the collaborative learning model.  In this course, collaborative learning requires each student to read and spend time reflecting on other’s postings, and then respond in a substantive manner to the postings of others.  In composing substantive responses, you can do several things, such as: *compare/contrast the findings of others with your research; *compare how the findings of others relate and add to the concepts learned in the required readings; and/or *share additional empirical knowledge regarding global business — or international experiences you may have had — relative to the postings of others.  The collaborative learning model requires substantive interaction between students on a weekly basis. Consider the Discussion as equivalent to being in a class, thus maintain professional communication standards at all times (no “IM” shorthand or informal jargon, please).
