Participants in the course PP110: Online Learning for Campus-based Teaching of the TESOL Principles & Practices of Teaching Online Certificate will present the outcomes of their course. They have implemented the Wikis constructed during the course with their own students, using them as online learning spaces that integrate and supplement the language training done in the face-to-face environment. Thus, they are true representations of blended learning.
The presenters will first discuss the requirements of the TESOL course and then illustrate how these were implemented in the three Wikis they created, two of which are now being used by students. Participants will see how Wikis are used as learning management systems for in-class and outside-of-class work, specifically for weekly assignments, class announcements, language activities, and collaborative work. The use of Wikis as important collaborative learning tools will be highlighted through team writing, outside-of-class discussions, shared dialogues, team presentations and projects, and collaborative vocabulary work. The third wiki will demonstrate how a Wiki helps newly arrived international students get acquainted with the town and reinforces their cultural and linguistic learning. This Wiki is designed to function as a collaborative writing center, an activity/practice center, and a homework delivery mechanism. The presenters will conclude by indicating additional potential uses of Wikis with students.
