Abstract

In this paper we describe a collaborative learning experience with post graduate students attending a master degree course in Educational Technology in the University of Minho, Braga, Portugal. The experience involved the use of wiki technology and explored advanced collaborative forms and participative assessment as part of the teaching method. We believed that learning would occur through social interaction generated by the exchange and sharing of information and opinions among a peer group in an online learning community. During the 1st semester of 2006/2007, sixteen master students developed a collaborative Wiki on a particular curriculum program – Research Methods in Education. At final wiki artefacts as well as students perceptions of the new learning experience were evaluated and findings are presented as well as suggestions for further research.
