We begin our discussion prompts and peer responses in the module starting in Week 4. Based on the survey I sent out you will be doing this in the Padlet, which I have embedded directly into the page here. Let me know if you have any questions. If it is your week, your discussion prompt Qs must be posted by noon on Sunday.
