Abstract
(English)
Already in common use outside the educational arena, wikis are rapidly moving into education as a form of learner communication and expression, and as a means to facilitate collaboration and working in groups. Many uses of wikis in formal education have been outlined by scholars and practitioners mainly focused on the students' perspective. However, further investigations are needed on how teachers are actually using this tool to support the design and development of educational materials, as well as the evaluation of both individual contribution and active participation to collaborative learning projects. This book provides a valuable tool and a source of knowledge for all those involved in enhancement of formal and informal learning both in higher and adult education. Drawing together relevant contributions from lead international experts in the field, this book will be a valuable tool and a source of knowledge for all those involved in enhancement of formal and informal learning both in higher and adult education: for example, in the case of formal learning, faculty members and researchers in the educational field; human resources managers and content/knowledge managers in organizational informal learning. Part 1 of this book deals with the use of wiki technology in formal learning (higher education and organizational context) to support: - individual learning - collaborative learning - co-writing as educational strategy - evaluation and assessment in educational activities based on co-production - design and development of curriculum materials - professional training - human resource development Part 2 explores the use of wikis in informal learning (professional and organizational context) to support: - knowledge flow processes - experiential sharing - professional problem solving - knowledge management and sharing
