Teaching with Wikis
If you are looking for a new way to promote student collaboration and help your students construct knowledge, then this workshop is for you. Wikis allow for collaborative online learning where students can share what they are learning and researching, work together to solve a problem, discuss ideas, and reflect on what they are learning. Facilitators will provide information on ways to incorporate wikis in courses across the disciplines, providing examples of how you might create your own wiki in order to create a cooperative and collaborative learning environment. You will be able to experience wiki construction using laptop computers provided at the workshop.
Facilitator: Daoine Bachran, Department of English
