Tutor MUST have a good command of the English language

Each post should average 150-250 words

  • Please remember that sources like the CDC or WHO are great places to get information from, but they are not considered scholarly sources. Scholarly sources are peer-reviewed and written by experts in the field.
    • You can certainly  continue to use them as references
  • Please avoid very long paragraphs because it causes several ideas to be clumped together as one and that is not very clear to understand. Instead, your paragraphs should be about 5-7 sentences long with transition statements to guide the reader into the next though. 
  • Unless otherwise specified, when asked to give examples it is best to give 2 or 3 strong examples with strong supporting evidence backed by your literature review, as opposed to 6 or 7      examples loosely stated.
  • Citation – Remember to cite content that is not your original idea, and that is not common knowledge.
    • If you state that       “The use of healthcare continues to rise because of technology,       access to care and population increase” — this needs to be cited. We as healthcare professionals may understand this, but others may not necessarily know this information. They need to know this was obtained from a source and not just your thought.
    • If you make inferences or draw conclusions you may state – “some factors that must be considered include technology, increased population and technological advances” – this is not a definitive statement. This shows that you have considered several factors involved and you can then use your references to further elaborate on each factor. 

Each post should include appropriate foundation knowledge, be factual, and enhance the ongoing dialogue. Each post should demonstrate either the application and/or reflection of knowledge. Your responses should expand on a classmate’s comments or advance the dialogue through follow-up questions Your responses should be open-ended to encourage continuing the conversation. Very few grammatical/spelling errors
