We’re making a push here on both blog and wiki use in classes, but finding that while there’s many posts on this and that blog/wiki project in higher education, that
- There’s not many lists compiled that show a variety of examples across many disciplines and institutions.
- Many of the examples we continue to use are quite old, giving the appearance of a wave that that broke around 2011.
I’d like to compile a list for my faculty of the best examples from each discipline of blogs and wikis utilized as a core part of traditional for-credit classes. I know the big ones that we all talk about all the time; I want the ones a level below that.
Can you help me out in the comments? Just a link to your favorite project that needs more recognition, and write a line or two about what you like about it.
All projects welcome, but bonus points for: projects in the hard sciences, projects involving data gathering, projects that engage with a local community, projects involving first-year students, cross-course projects, anything that wasn’t at UMW (we love UMW, but too many examples from UMW raise concerns that the model is not generally transferable).
