Pre-Institute Assignment 3 - Introduction to the Wiki – Due June 23, 2009


To help you collaborate now and in the future, we have created a wiki website to which you will contribute and document your experience. The address for the wiki is   Click on “2009 Research Scholars” on the left. You will then see the various pages that have already been created on the left, including “Faculty and Staff,” “Research Scholars,” “SoTL Institute,” and “Resources.” Under the “Research Scholars” tab, a page has been created for each of you. We would like you to (1) add information to your homepage and (2) create a new page under your heading and provide some information. 
Below are the activities and steps to walk you through the process.  There is also a user manual for the wiki site posted on the “Resources” tab:
Activity 1-Login
 * In the top-left corner, you should see an orange “login” button. Click this button to login
 *Your user name and password has already been set as your first initial and last name. i.e. mslone.
Activity 2-Homepage: Editing a page
 *Make sure you are logged in. You should see your username in the upper left corner if you are correctly logged in. The orange logout button should also be visible.
 * For this assignment, you must edit the page already created for you under “Research Scholars.”
 *In the blue header at the top of the page select “Edit page”
 *Add to the page your current CONTACT INFORMATION. 
  *Feel free to add links to your professional and/or personal website, information about your institute (You may choose to cut and paste directly from your Introduction assignment. We have provided an example.), and any other items that may interest the group <Play!>
 *If you are inclined to try, add a photo of yourself to this page so the facilitators and staff may identify you when you arrive on site.
Activity 3-Background: Adding a subpage     
 *Again, make certain you are logged in.
 *For this assignment, you have to open your personal page under “Research Scholars.”
 *In the blue header at the top of the page select “Add page”
 *Once in the editing mode, change the title of the page to read “Background.”  This is the title that will appear in the hierarchy tabs to the left.
 *On this page cut and paste two pieces of information provided on your application to the program. They are:
(1) describe your teaching responsibilities and (2) describe your professional development goals.
