International Collaborative Student Project 2010
In 2010 we plan to run a student project in Physiopedia that will involve international collaboration between undergraduate students from different nations. Below are some of the first thoughts for developing this project:
Phase One - Developing the project
- A project plan will be created in Physiopedia. This will be developed between Rachael Lowe and the tutors.
- The related 'Talk' page will be used to communicate ideas for the development of the project and to express an interest in being involved in the project.
Phase Two - Participant selection
- Participants will be undergraduate students from an accredited physiotherapy or physical therapy programme.
- Each group of participants will have a tutor to guide them in the project.
- A maximum of 3 nations will be involved.
- Each nation will be from a different continent.
Phase Three - Creating pages
- The project will run synchronously between nations.
- Students will be divided into appropriately sized groups (we are aiming for around 10 groups).
- Each group will contain equall numbers of students from each nation (as far as possible).
- Groups will be tasked to create pages in Physiopedia.
- The 'Talk' page of the page the students are creating will be available for related discussions throughout the project and will probably be used for assessment.
- They will be given a specific time within which to complete their page.
Phase Four - Peer review
- On completion of phase three participants wil be asked to peer review each others work.
- They will each be asked to annonymously identify their top three pages.
- The three pages with the highest votes will be highlighted on the Physiopedia home page.
Phase Five - Feedback
- Each participant will be asked to provide feedback.
- Feedback will be gathered annonymously (maybe online) by questionnaire and open questioning.
Phase Six - Dissemination of results
- With Rachael Lowe (the project lead), the tutors involved in the project will write a report for publication and presentation.
