From Case Studies Wiki
What is here?
The Case Studies Project (which eventually became the teachingcommons) ran from September 2007-July 2009. During that time, there have been millions of hits on the collective websites, tens of thousands of views on Flickr and the YouTube channel of our photos and videos and almost a 1000 contributions from staff and students to this site and the related (Good Practice Blog.
The Case Studies Project is no longer active. You are more than welcome to contribute your own Case Studies, but unfortunately the project is no longer actively supported.
The Case Studies Wiki Database contains case studies about teaching and learning practice written by colleagues and students at the University of Sheffield.
This wiki (formerly known as the Case Studies Project) is part of the larger teachingcommons@sheffield project:www.shef.ac.uk/teachingcommons. Here you can read about a variety of learning and teaching practice at the University of Sheffield. The teachingcommons project was launched on Monday, October 20, 2008 at the Dam House.

The policy for this project/database is open access and all case studies can be edited.
This is a space to develop ideas (you can post resources here to share with people related to learning and teaching) and collaborate using the the edit function. To edit and contribute to this wiki, you need a login. Please contact LeTS for this (firstname.lastname@example.org).
How it works....
A wiki is a powerful search engine (use the lefthand searchbox and type in names or keywords). For this reason, we archive the Good Practice blog posts as well.
There are going to be a number of changes to these pages over the next month. You can always find what you want by typing in keywords, names or subject in the search box on the lefthand side of your screen or by going to the A-Z.
Searching this wiki
The most effective way to find a Case Study in this wiki is to type in a keyword into the search function (i.e. "podcasting" or "assessment") exactly like you would in a web search engine. If a keyword doesn’t work try a different keyword with a similar meaning (i.e. “cooperative”, “collaborative”, “group work”).
Wikis are powerful databases that search all the words used on each page and then list the results for you by relevance. On the lefthand navigational bar you can go to some main pages that will link you into Case Studies as well.
