New Media for Science project Wiki_tip_1

New Media for Science is an ALTC funded research project to develop the professional abilities required by science graduates through 'authentic' exercises -- student publication of wikis, podcasts, blogs, and videos. More about our project.

This wiki is a resource for science academics and students who wish to incorporate new media in their teaching, research, or project work.


Examples

Australian science academics are already assigning students to:
1. Explain concepts in their own words
2. Document a lab or site visit
3. Comment on hot topics in the media
4. Assess peer's work
5. Report on research or mock consultancy
6. Report to or educate a public audience.
