A 2007-08 Tour of IUP Faculty Explorations in Teaching Technology
Presentation for the Emerging Technology Committee of ACPAC
2pm - Thursday, May 1, 2008
The availability of new digital tools and problems in academic publishing hav led many scholarly journals to investigate the transition from a print-format, subscription model to web publishing platforms. Such systems typically assist journal editors and writers in managing the peer-review and production process, while helping them to publish a broadly accessible and professional journal. Open Journal Systems is one such open access product being explored on a trial basis at www.IUPDHC.Org/openjournal.
The Academic Commons has just released a fascinating special issue entitled Cyberinfrastructure and the Liberal Arts. Individual essays deal with cutting edge humanities research, pedagogy, archives, etc.
Visit the wiki for a brief outline of the general educational uses of the wiki, and a look at the explorations in progress of IUP Faculty.
You are welcome to contribute to this Wikis In Education 101" page, which has been composed for a presentation to the ACPAC Emerging Technology Committee at IUP.

Students reinterpret literacy practices through collaborative digital performance.

This fall three members of the Digitial Humanites working group will explore the learning potential of the Wiki with their students. Familiar as the interface for "Wikipedia," the wiki is a tool for collaboration that has many educational uses. The key feature is that any entry created can subsequently be modified with new information by later readers.
