Back to the Impression: eleUM meeting: Student 2.0
The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences uses Wiki's as a collaborative learning tool - specifically within the course Media and War, which is a third year course in the Bachelor specialization Media Culture. The course focus is on an analysis of the ways in which acts of war are medialised, rather than on the social-political and economic causes and implications of war. Besides learning the knowledge and skills immediately associated with the medialisation of war, students also learn to:
During week 1-5 students are assigned to groups each focusing on a specific cluster. Per meeting, each group reports on a cluster related theme. The findings are rewritten for Wikipedia and posted on the wiki to be peer-reviewed the next meeting.
During week 6-8 students work on an individual assignment, formulating a small research plan and adding contributions to the wiki. By doing so the students create a meaningful, collective wiki. The individual students also do redactional work on the whole wiki.
Why was a wiki chosen?
The Wiki doesn't run on our own Blackboard environment, other products are being used:
