Title: Fostering collaboration and benefiting from blurred boundaries between students and academics
Authors: Barker, Phil
Keywords: Electronic and computer engineering
Network protocols
Issue Date: 2009
Publisher: © Higher Education Academy Engineering Subject Centre, Loughborough University
Abstract: This case study has been developed as part of the Engineering Subject Centre Teaching Awards 2009, from data gathered through observations of the teaching component; interviews with the tutor; a questionnaire to students and a student focus group. This case study presents evaluations of two distinct uses of "Web 2.0" or "Social Networking" applications in teaching electronic and computer engineering: the use of a wiki during exam revision so that students can work collaboratively on answering past questions; and the use of Twitter, a wiki and online learning logs as tools to facilitate project supervision.
