03. Vision and Revision: Using Wikis [Christopher Penna, Delaware]
March 30, 2011 3 Comments
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.
