There is a need to fully involve students who maybe reticent, shy, lacking in English language proficiency, on hesitant to participate in class for any other reason. In my last three years at UNLV, I have felt a bit frustrated by the students who are either unwilling or unable to participate in class. As a remedy for the above problem, I included online discussion forums along with in class case studies. I learnt this practice from pedagogical research at the Association of University Programs in Healthcare Administration (AUPHA). My students in the in person class modality, were offered the opportunity to participate in class discussions online as well as in class.
