Using Wikis in Teaching & Learning


Producer: OIT
Series:TLT Brown Bag

60 minutes

Unlike a typical web site published by a single person or small group, or even a "blog" (short for Web Log) that usually consists of short, diary-like posts by a few users and comments by many, a Wiki is a communal web site anyone can easily add to and edit. A notable example is Wikipedia, "the free encyclopedia anyone can edit." At UMBC, faculty members Philip Farabaugh (Biology) Robin Farabaugh (English) and Stephen Freeland (Biology) have been experimenting with Wikis for their teaching and research (example #1 and #2). Learn what happened as a result and how this communal form of publishing has influenced their pedagogy.
