Can course wikis improve student learning? Find out Sept. 6


In the first installment of the Teaching and Learning Center’s Faculty Thriving with Technology series, Dr. Fridtjof Thomas, UTHSC College of Medicine, answers the question with his topic: “Promoting high-level comprehension of statistical material by means of a Blackboard wiki.”

The goal of the learning series is to foster a culture of excellence and innovation by providing a collegial environment for faculty to exchange experiences supportive of launching new teaching, learning, and research initiatives. Dr. Thomas’ pedagogy-themed seminar will detail an innovative wiki-approach to stimulate learning. He will also elaborate on the experience from wiki-initiation to rubric grading and extraction of the final wiki.

The event is hosted by the Teaching and Learning Center on Thursday, September 6 at noon in 920 Madison, Suite 424. Light refreshments and beverages will be provided. Register now.
