Tickeys for Wikis

Follow-up to Explaining the Silence from Computer-aided assessment for sciences

Anyone wondering how effective crossing fingers was for

"the joint proposal on wikis as a teaching–and–learning tool"

might like to know: it worked!

Warwick's Education Innovation Fund has agreed to support a 2–year project to investigate the use of wikis in undergraduate teaching and learning; the lead will be taken in:

  • The Department of Computer Science in Year 1 (a wiki will be established to support a first–year programming module with contributions from students, staff and experts from the computing industry).

  • The Department of Mathematics in Year 2 (final–year students will create their own wiki of module resources built around a given skeleton syllabus; in other words, they will write their own lecture course. Their contributions will form a significant part of the module credit).

Other University departments have expressed an interest in devising their own experiments with teaching wikis.

If you would like to be kept informed of this project's progress, or to join in, please send me an email.
