Engaging with others
This Study Group is made up of discussion threads where ideas or questions are shared and people can engage with each other. You can either:
Join an ongoing conversation. Start a new one.
Joining an ongoing conversation
If you see an ongoing conversation that interests you, then you can click into it to learn more and see what others have to say. If you see a response that you like, then give it a like by clicking "Upvote". If you have something to share, then you can do so by clicking “Reply”.
Think of every interaction you make as an opportunity to make a new connection and grow your network. Share your ideas and expertise and don’t be afraid to ask for help. That’s why we’re all here.
Have an idea for a new discussion you’d like to start? Click the orange “Create post” button (where the orange "Join group" button existed before you became a member of the Study Group).
You’ll be prompted to add a:
Content for the body of your post.
Filling in the subject line
In the Subject line, we recommend keeping this short and specific. Think “what do you want people to know or do?” Your subject line is what will prompt people to join your discussion.
**Pro tip: Think of the subject line like the title of a blog post, how can you make it interesting to attract people?
Filling in the content for the body of the post
What do you want to communicate in your post? What type of conversation would you like to start? This can be as short or long as you like. You can add your message into the body of the post editor.
Here are a few pro tips to consider:
If it’s relevant, add an image to your post. Using images can bring context to what you’re talking about.
Make it a best practice to either start or end your post with a question that prompts members of the group. Think of this as starting a new conversation, because that’s exactly what you’re doing.
