03. Vision and Revision: Using Wikis [Christopher Penna, Delaware]

03-Penna-Wiki

Professor Penna developed a wiki with the goal of increasing engagement in a course on British Literature. Students conduct research, interpret materials, and then create multimedia pages. Besides learning factual information, they gain collaborative writing experience, navigate copyright issues, and participate in an editorial process. The work is published online and read around the world, becoming a source of great pride for students.

  1. Great essay, Chris! I love the way you describe the thought process behind the choice of a wiki as a tool for this task. Very well presented in words that faculty can understand.

    I blogged about this essay on UD’s Open Education blog. http://sites.udel.edu/open/2011/04/student-driven-wiki/
