Wiki Usage in SPAN 303 Survey of Spanish American Literatures

Contributor

Meghan McInnis-Dominguez
Associate Professor, Department of Foreign Languages & Literatures
University of Delaware

Summary

During the fall 2007 semester, Professor McInnis-Dominguez used a wiki to support in-class presentation in a foreign language. The wiki provided a space for teammates to prepare their presentation material and a comment gathering point for commenting on other students work. She noticed that the presentations are better now that students are using a wiki. She provided a template wiki page to each team to guide them in their research and presentation. Students in her class developed their own fully contextualized textbook in the wiki.
