Online discussion activities are commonly used to create online communities, foster peer and tutor support, encourage reflection and provide equal opportunities for participation, particularly for fully online students. This paper describes the use of discussion in face-to-face tutorials for an undergraduate Information Delivery module. The rationale for using asynchronous discussion face-to-face is discussed and the paper then describes the evaluation of the module, examines its results, and discusses recommendations for future iterations.
