Proposed topic and co-writing methodology
Group wiki 15

The proposed topic we wish to write our wiki on is Social Learning Theory.

We agreed that we would all begin by expanding on our knowledge of social learning theory through independent research which we would then discuss at our next meeting.
Sekai suggested that we should work on trying to find some more current research on the topic as the majority of our information so far is based on the emergence of social learning theory. Abi passed this information on to Charlotte who was unable to attend the previous meeting.

Abi advised that there is a lot of information online regarding what a wiki is and the main components of what it should include, she intends to research this and feed back to the group at the next meeting where we will begin to establish more specific roles within the project.
We will also be gathering online documents, journal articles, papers and websites throughout our
