Learning Circles: Wikis
Thursday (5/31/07) 10:45-11:45am
We discussed the use, pros, and cons of using "wikis" to create collaborative
learning opportunities for students. The wiki is the document and all members
can contribute to the content of the document.
I would like to create a CS310TA wiki for collecting all of the valuable
information and resources that all TAs provide for new TAs to learn the expectations and requirements of their respective course. Guidelines must be established
to help create a positive framework for this information. The TAs would be
members and allowed to contribute to the document as long as they remain a TA of the course.
My wikis: cs310 csTAS
More information and help is available at: wiscwikis.wikispaces.com.
Expanding the Wisconsin Idea: Podcasting
Thursday (5/31/07) 8:30-9:30am
Learned some historical perspective on the Wisconsin Idea,
that the work and research that is done at the UW-Madison is
and should be made available to the larger community of the state as a whole
and to an even broader global audience. We saw podcasting examples.
I will considering using podcasting for CS310 news items,
a Matlab glossary, and possibily interviews with Field Engineers
regarding the skills they need and use the most.
Contact Writing (Journalism) people for assistance
with interview questions and release forms.
