Why have "my psychwiki" in psychology?


How to use "my psychwiki"?


For example, some people have created stand-alone pages for:

⇒ their classes     (example)
⇒ individual class assignments (example)
⇒ coordinating RAs for lab sections (example)
⇒ brainstorming ideas for courses (example)
⇒ association website (example)
⇒ organizing events (example)
⇒ student group website (example)
⇒ lab groups (example)
⇒ brownbags and speaker series (example)
⇒ professional development series (example)
⇒ announcing workshops (example)
⇒ posting online studies (example)
⇒ group events (example)
⇒ collaborative notes from conferences (example)
⇒ posting interesting study results (example)

And here is how to use each Category:

-- create your own annotated bibliography online for easy access...
-- publicize your research and link it to other pages/concepts...
-- see comments about published research or get feedback on your own research...
-- post conference proceedings to integrate with other similar research...
-- some people use psychwiki to create pages about famous psychology studies...

-- see some of the work done in various labs or share some of your own work...
-- wiki software is designed to make it free/easy to create your own webpage...

-- create a centralized hub of information around a single topic...
-- provide a forum for discussion...

-- connect to other researchers with shared research interests...
-- a new way to collaborate at the level of the entire research field, not just your department/school...
-- a new way to create Review articles collectively...
-- a new way for getting feedback on your research idea or research design...

A wiki provides a useful way to present this new information to the collective benefit of the field by sharing our experiences and knowledge
