Overview - University of Wollongong Teaching & Learning Journal


If the booking sheet for the first few weeks of session in the Faculty of Arts Computer lab is anything to go by, teaching staff are increasingly utilising Information Technology (IT) as a teaching tool and a learning resource. One of the main IT skills that students are being encouraged to learn is the use of the Internet, including Electronic Mail, Telnet and the World Wide Web. While staff may be familiar with the use of the Internet for research purposes, they may be less aware of its use in the classroom. In this paper I want to briefly reflect on my own decision to use the World Wide Web as part of my teaching practice in the Sociology Program.
