From PsychWiki - A Collaborative Psychology Wiki
- noun (ˈnä-lij ˈbās)
1. a computerized collection, organization, and retrieval of collective knowledge (from wikipedia)
2. interactive database of question-answer sets, advice, current information (from google)
3. the content of a particular field of knowledge (from WordNet)
We each have acquired unique skills and knowledge over the years through our experiences as researchers, teachers, clinicians, mentors, writers, and etc., in our fields of interest -- sharing this knowledge is how science progresses, such as the apprenticeship/mentorship model of learning in graduate school.
Now everyone can benefit from the experiences/knowledge of each other! Unlike a traditional static website, a wiki offers the ability to pool our collective knowledge because anyone in the field can edit the webpages and add what they know.
Some of the page titles are framed as questions
because a wiki is uniquely designed to connect people who have questions with people who have answers. If you have a question, type it into the relevant page and it will appear as a red link (learn more here)
. If you feel like you have something to share/answer, just click "edit" at the top of the relevant page (learn more here)
