Wiki Omnibus

January 6, 2011 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Following up on the excellent training I received in the Faculty Technology Institute back in the summer of 2009, I’ve been experimenting with wikis in my ancient history classes for the past couple of semesters and the results have been excellent.  I’ve been trying to spread the word about the academic merits of course-specific wikis.  I was delighted to be invited by the TLT folks to be featured in an “Innovative Instruction” video. 

For certainly types of courses, especially courses with heavy amounts of specific content for students to master, I highly recommend trying a wiki.  Feedback from students has been very positive — and students have been performing better on exams, both in factual content and in analytical essays, as a result of using the wiki.  To mix a bit of Hawaiian and Latin, I advocate “wiki omnibus”!
