Using Wikis to Empower Student Learning: Student and Instructor Perspectives

Sunday, January 29 | 11:00PM–11:00PM
Session Type: Resources
This presentation reports on an experiment incorporating a wiki into a senior seminar in economics. The wiki enabled creation of a parallel universe outside the classroom, where students had as much power to define the universe as the instructor. The freedom provided by the wiki manifested itself in pedagogically interesting ways.

The Plaza C learning studio is provided by Herman Miller, Inc.
