Christa Williford, School of Theatre Studies, University of Warwick
Dr. Christa Williford describes her and Professor Beacham’s use of the THEATRON online resource and an extensive module website in the teaching of a module at the School of Theatre Studies.
Students found the website to be very useful with regards to the additional resources it provided as well as centralised communication about the course and assignments. They did not, however, engage with the online collaborative tools, such as the forum and the student publishing section.
Another benefit of creating the online resource was that it provided and opportunity for the course lecturers to clarify their educational objectives and to focus more closely upon students’ research and information management skills.
