Choose an interesting and valuable topic for your wiki-course! You can choose between: (a) developing a new mini-course that addresses a new topic or further elaborates a sub-topic covered by an existing mini-course; or (b) implementing one of the new learning approaches in your classroom (if you are currently a teacher) and contribute a case-based study report, including your classroom contexts, educational goals, lesson plan, processes, findings, and implications.
  
If you want to contribute a classroom-based case study of a new learning approach/technology, that would be great. Do it! If you want to address new topics, below are some examples. If several of you are interested in one topic, you're welcome to gather around it, think about it together, frame your divisions and connections (Make sure that each of you still have enough depth and content in your course.)
