Wiki research grant success!

We have been successful in our application for a teaching and learning enhancement fund project (TLEF) collaborating between OT, PT and S&LP programmes here at the University of Alberta.

The project is looking at students perceptions of developing a Wiki as a groupwork assignment and is an extension of work we were doing at Deakin University in Australia.

“Students’ perceptions of collaborating to create a Wiki, and the relationship between approach to task and learning style.”

The project will run over the next 18 months and will hopefully give us some idea of how students find collaborating in virtual teams on a group project.

Thanks to those of you who helped get this to this stage, now for ethics… then the project proper!!!

  1. Hi Anita,Congrats on getting funding. now the work begins! Perahps we could do a duplicate study in NZ??We have been using Blackboard as a means to communicate between NZ (otago)and Canadian (Kingston Uni) students. This was post grad and Master entry students. The main motivator proved to be marks awarded for contribution, however once students contributed they did have some very interesting comments. My reflections on this can be seen: http://lrobertson.wordpress.com/2007/11/12/my-assessment-for-this-course-international-learning-evaluation/
