Personal goals for BaW-07



Here is a space where BaW07 participants may add their personal goals for this course (if you wish) and revisit as goals change or are achieved:



Penny Lundquist

  • to learn how to use a wiki to work on projects with my colleagues
  • to figure out how I might incorporate distance learning into the Teaching Excellence Center program
  • to learn how to incorporate wikis and blogs into the teachingexcellencenetwork.org site


Nina Liakos (Maryland, USA)

  • to increase my comfort zone with a variety of e-tools and e-toys - not achieved to my satisfaction! There is still much to do
  • to explore those tools I didn't have time to explore last year, in particular podcasts and wikis - Podcasts no; wikis, yes!
  • to lend a helping hand to the "newbies", as people did to me last year - I think I did this!
  • to become familiar with wikis. I'd like to use a wiki for my class at the University of Maryland - yes.  I have been using 2 wikis for my class: http://005spr2007.pbwiki.com and http://005readingspr2007.pbwiki.com.  One is a repository for general information for the class, and the second is an interactive site where students respond to questions about the books they are reading.  I also got some intense wiki practice while doing the threads for Week 4.  But there's still a lot to learn: I've been working mainly with text--no bells or whistles yet!
  • to make new friends around the world! - achieved, definitely!  Let's stay in touch!
