The course outlined below is now obsolete, since we are not running on the WikiSpace platform anymore. However, we would be happy to discuss with new or old users how to put together a new course teaching you how to use NucWik in its present incarnation.
The CINCH consortium developed a hands-on training course for how to use NucWik. It is a 3-4 hour "hands-on" seminar aiming at making teachers aware of the NucWik feature and it's possibilities, instruct them on some typical ways to use material from NucWik in Nuclear- and Radiochemistry (NRC) teaching , and to give them basic knowledge and practice on how to upload material and actively contribute to the NucWik database.
The course will run for 3-4 hours with an option to be extended with a more advanced hand-on session (thus expanding it into a full-day course). If you would like such a course to be arranged at your instituttion or in connection a an event, please contact Prof. Jon Petter Omtvedt at the University of Oslo to discuss details and conditions.
Course Outline (obsolete, it was made for the WikiSpace platform)
The outline of the course is as following:
Session A: Introduction:
What is a Wiki (video + explanation/comparison to Wikipedia).
The idea behind NucWik – sharing NRC teaching material.
Is login needed?
How do I navigate/find topics/material?
Session B: Using material from NucWik in your own teaching:
NucWik structure and the use of tags to classify pages.
Quality control concept "CINCH approved".
Session C: Contributing material to NucWik
Session D: (Optional): Uploading your own material
A course consisting of Session A-C will last for 45 + 90 + 60 minutes; breaks can be added between the three sessions as fitting. For a more advanced course session D can be added (probably after a lunch break) and will typically bring the course to a full day event. Alternatively, Session A-C can be run for everybody in a group and Session D offered for those "specially interested".
