Abstract

Abstract: Wikis are increasingly being used to enhance and facilitate collaborative learning in higher education. This paper describes the use of a wiki in an educational technology course to build community and collaboration among educators beyond the classroom and course duration. Feedback from participants at the end of the educational technology course highlighted the potential of wikis for encouraging collaboration, sharing, and reflection by teachers about their technology use in educational environments. Quantitative and qualitative data about participant educators’ continued use of the wiki and their sense of community will be collected three months after the end of the course.
