Why have "my psychwiki" in psychology?

How to use "my psychwiki"?

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

⇒ their classes     (example)

⇒ coordinating RAs for lab sections (example)
⇒ brainstorming ideas for courses (example)
⇒ association website (example)

⇒ brownbags and speaker series (example)
⇒ professional development series (example)
⇒ announcing workshops (example)

And here is how to use each Category:

-- 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...

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