WiscWiki 2007 LTDC Grant: Collaborative Hub

(LTDC = Learning Technology Development Council)

Get started with wikis and this space through this 2-minute tutorial of Wikispaces.

Description of Overarching Project

This collaborative, inter-institutional project will focus and structure a handful of investigations of wikis as sites for meaningful interactions in two deliberate ways:
  • Student Learning Projects: examine sites of students' collaborative learning, demonstration of such learning, and instructors' assessments of learning in both single and multi-multidisciplinary course settings and in both undergraduate and graduate collaborations; and
  • WiscWiki Collaborative Hub: the site for all faculty collaborations on this project and thus an illustration of how wikis can be used for professional development activities--from brainstorming and organizing, to collaborative writing of formal materials, to public sharing of products. Through the various activities involved in this large project, we will also be evaluating a variety of wiki platforms for their utility in an educational setting.
