Communities

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 Why should we teach our students to write on the web? Several contributors identified “communities” as a key theme, referring both to creating richer collaborations among students in the course, and to exchanging views with others beyond the classroom walls. In their co-authored essay, “Sister Classrooms: Blogging Across Disciplines and Campuses,” Amanda Hagood and Carmel Price explain how student writing changed when they linked their two classes at different colleges through online writing about the environment. In “Indigenizing Wikipedia,” Siobhan Senier describes what her students learned by attempting to write the stories of contemporary Native American authors into the popular encyclopedia, and the barriers they encountered by online editors. Michael O’Donnell evaluates his biology students’ collective experience with an innovative approach to lab reports in “Science Writing, Wikis, and Collaborative Learning.” Peter Olson reflects on themes of collaboration and convergence between the academy and the public square in his essay, “Web Writing in the University Community.” Finally, Jack Dougherty offers lessons he learned on community-building in “Collaborative Writing, Peer Review, and Publishing in the Cloud.”
