Wiki Usage in SPAN 303 Survey of Spanish American Literatures
Associate Professor, Department of Foreign Languages & Literatures
University of Delaware
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.
Interview recorded on November 27, 2007, as a part of Mathieu Plourde's wiki report.
