Wikis in the Classroom: Faculty and Student Perspective

Journal of Political Science Education Volume 6, Number 3, ISSN 1551-2169


In March 2009, a faculty member and four political science students led a forum entitled "Wikis in the Classroom: Student and Faculty Perspective." The discussion centered on a number of benefits and concerns with the use of wikis as an instructional tool within the classroom. Based on student and faculty feedback, this article expands on four themes that emerged from the roundtable discussion: training, applicability of assignments, setting clear guidelines, and expectations and grading.
