Dennis Wollersheim's presentation for AAAOpenConf2013.
Peer assessment using Moodle, student generated content, randomly generated assignments...
Notes[edit | edit source]
HOPE - boundless
ATTENTION - finite
Blame the victim - Blame the structure?
RACE GENDER CLASS - students are impacted in their atttitudes and behaviours by all three factors.
Opportunity - internal locus of control
Change in the way we receive information
Fail fast - learn from mistakes and try new things - peer assessment in Moodle - marks for how well you assess others.
Be a model for learning - learn something every time you teach.
Excitement about publishing in wikipedia - test case by student putting up "rubbish" and having it taken down immediately - proof that there is peer review.
Take home exam - each student got a different set of content drawn from the web.
Community of Practice - keep the conversations active and lively.
Ideas[edit | edit source]
If your participants are writing papers to your open journal on Wikiversity (See Publish a paper in the Assignments section), then ask the participants to review each other's work. You might specify review tasks such as checking word count, referencing, copyright, or go further and coordinate collaboration where participants have chosen similar or complimentary topics. Peer review can be structured following established norms, such as a student run academic journal, where the principles of an academic journal are applied in an academic journal set up here in Wikiversity. All papers would be listed, peer reviewed and assessed. The best papers would be elevated to the front page of the journal, while the others remain accessible but not promoted. For an example of this, see The Journal of Sport and Exercise Studies.
