Fostering collaboration and benefiting from blurred boundaries between students and academics

This case study has been developed as part of the Engineering Subject Centre Teaching Awards 2009, from data gathered through observations of the teaching component; interviews with the tutor; a questionnaire to students and a student focus group. This case study presents evaluations of two distinct uses of "Web 2.0" or "Social Networking" applications in teaching electronic and computer engineering: the use of a wiki during exam revision so that students can work collaboratively on answering past questions; and the use of Twitter, a wiki and online learning logs as tools to facilitate project supervision.
