BRUNA JOFRE, Carola; BUNSTER BALOCCHI, Marta; MARTINEZ OYANEDEL, José  y  MARQUEZ URRIZOLA, Carolina. Using Wiki to promote self-learning and Social Responsibility on future scientists. Educ Med Super [online]. 2014, vol.28, n.2, pp.229-242. ISSN 0864-2141.

Over the past decades, the need of modernizing teaching has been extensively discussed, for example by producing environments that promote the student engagement in the teaching and learning process. Methodologies that are consistent with this proposal are Information and Communication Technologies, which present socioeconomic and pedagogical advantages, especially the stimulation of generic competences. Within this context, for the purpose of motivating self-learning and the social responsibility of communicating scientific knowledge and technological advances to the community, we used Wiki in the biochemistry course of scientific undergraduate programs. Students wrote articles concerning freely chosen topics on the Arco platform, which were graded using a global perspective rubric, whereas, a checklist was used for student's assessment of the activity. The students felt motivated to study biochemistry, since they learnt about the topic selected by their team and that communicating health and biotechnological issues to the community was one of their professional roles. The strategy was successful as an approach to support self-learning, and promoting social responsibility of future scientists.
