Teaching Archaeology in Cyberspace: A Pilot Study at Flinders University, South Australia

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    An early venture into using the internet for university teaching. Outlines an internationally collaborative venture in the flexible delivery of the topic ‘Power,
    Ethnicity and Gender in Archaeology'. The topic is structured around active learning practices, with the aim of helping students develop communication, problem-solving and group-work skills. This approach is extended to make innovative use of Web-based materials to achieve a flexible course delivery that accesses global expertise
    in the topic area. Lecturers in this course are based in Australia, Indonesia, USA and the United Kingdom. The methods used in topic delivery include the establishment and maintenance of a Web site by students as part of their course work; the use of electronic mail to provide interactive consultation between students and outside
    lecturers as well as student-student contact; and the use of a Chat Forum so that participants can interact in real time.
