Making the sausages before you eat them: Educational assignments in the open – Dr Martin Poulter

Abstract

Wikipedia’s mission is not just to give people a free encyclopedia, but to give them the ‘edit’ button. Though Wikipedia has become ubiquitous as a starting point for research, it is not well-known that a lot of Wikipedia articles were written by students in exchange for course credit. Students get an experience of publishing, feedback, and a critical appreciation of online sources by contributing to one themselves. This presentation looks into these assignments and some of the practicalities of running and assessing them.

Innovation project: Canvas to support breakaway training – Natalie Hartley

Abstract

Paramedics today have a wealth of opportunity to work in varying clinical settings. As such, our BSc students experience a range of placements to enhance their learning experience and understanding of the profession. These settings often involve face-to-face contact with patients who, for a wide variety of reasons, can behave erratically and irrationally. Whilst situational avoidance of violence is always preferable, we have a duty to provide our students with the skills to ‘breakaway’ from any patient who becomes physically aggressive, without causing disablement or harm to the patient. The physical skills are taught by specially trained tutors but to enable students to maintain and refresh their knowledge and recall of these moves on a regular basis, we have created a Canvas site to offer students on completion of the face-to-face course.

Innovation project: Participatory arts practice – a digital toolkit – Dr Wendy Coxshall and Dr Beverley Carpenter

Abstract

What is community-based arts practice? How can arts-based practice enable us to create participatory social spaces with ‘hard to reach’ groups? This project set out to enable social work students to develop practical skills through collaboration with arts practitioners. The students planned and facilitated creative workshops in a centre for the homeless and a residential care home for older women. They learned the value of the arts as a tool to create participatory social spaces. The resulting digital tool kit lays out how students and practitioners can create unique collaborative workshop environments that promote health and wellbeing.

Under the bonnet: Quality on Wikipedia – Dr Martin Poulter

Abstract

Transparency and reliability are intertwined on Wikipedia, yet the site can feel anything but transparent because a lot of the site’s features are hard to find. In this hands-on workshop we explore Wikipedia as an ongoing process, with informal and formal quality reviews, and look at how reliable information competes against hoaxes and bias. Just as you look under the bonnet of a used car before buying it, Wikipedia makes it easy to ‘look under the bonnet’ of claimed knowledge.

Wiki races – Dr Martin Poulter

Abstract

Wiki racing is a fun activity that tests thinking at multiple levels of abstraction. It can test general knowledge or knowledge in a specific domain, and can be played by anyone with an Internet connection. In this session, you will experience a wiki-race and get tips on running one with a group. Bring a laptop or tablet if you have one. You do not need to have attended the other wiki sessions.
