Flipping the flip: Organizing students around a wiki and training colleagues to do likewise


What was this about?

This session demonstrates a wiki developed for my classes over time that colleagues in my teaching context started collaborating with, and how I created a wiki to help my colleagues create their own, in such a way that it modeled how learning can be facilitated through a wiki

This presents a wiki that’s suddenly found traction with my colleagues where I teach. I’d like to talk about (1) how we use it to collaborate on the course we teach in common and (2) because I don’t want to be the constant go-to person for materials they create, how I have started a wiki to train colleagues to put up their own materials, at http://kbzpd.pbworks.com

Some time ago I organized my contribution to teacher training where I work around a blog http://toolkit4learning.blogspot.com. This presentation will be linked from that blog, illustrating some different affordances between blogs and wikis which allow each to work together in blended pedagogical and professional learning environments.
