After reviewing each of the tabs, what observations can you make about the information on Wikipedia about each of the learning theories? Use worksheet on Blackboard to review a total of 10 Wikipedia pages about various learning theories.

Week 6 Assignment 2 (DUE Sunday or Monday, February 19 or 20, 2012)
  • The objective of this assignment is to collect key information about the learning theories you reviewed on Wikipedia to begin to compare and contrast the quality of information.
  • Complete one entry for each of the eight learning theories you reviewed (other than the first two--pedagogy and andragogy).
  • You may be able to find the information based on the information you collected last week. However, if the information is missing, do go back to the Wikipedia page for the learning theory to collect and input the exact text.

You made it! You edited your first Wikipedia article!

Article banners

To mark each article the subject of a student project, add the following code at the top of the talk page for each article: {{ WAP assignment | course = Wikipedia:United States Education Program/Courses/Corporate Training and Development | university = University of Wikipedia | term = 2012 Q1 | project = }} That will result in the following banner (and make the articles easy to track):

Grading[edit]

Wikipedia contributions will be graded as follows:

  • 5%: Completion of Wikipedia assignments in class/homework Steps 1-3
  • 5%: Completion of research and submission of 1-2 page report and bibliography in Blackboard
