Adventures in the Principles of Learning Course Wiki: A Wikiography
Parsons, Jesse
Canadian Journal of Action Research, v18 n3 p12-20 2017
When I first visited the Principles of Learning (Pol) course wiki, I sensed the breadth and depth of the existing posts. The proceeding page has been intentionally left blank. It represents the feeling of dilemma when creating my first, new post. This paper will report on my contributions to the Principles of Learning (PoL) course wiki as a form of reflection on my first semester in the Masters of Education (MEd) program at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT). The opening discussion poses the dilemma of first encountering the wiki. The next section describes a series of smaller posts to the wiki while reflecting on the work process of building wiki content. This is followed by a summary of contributions to the wiki featuring people in education: Bill Bigelow (2017), Malcolm Gladwell (2008), John Goodlad (2004), and a discussion of revisionist history. A final section will consolidate what I learned during this process for use in future course work. An afterword notes additional contributions that I made before 2016 came to a close.
