    Abstract

    In our faculty's instructional practices, we have changed towards a blend of teaching and learning in which course Web sites are often being used as environments where learners can contribute their own experiences, or those of other persons, in their work environments. These submissions are not only "assignments" in a course or module, but also objects that become part of the learning resources of others. In university learning situations, this is a way to engage students more directly in the learning process as contributors as well as consumers of pre-selected learning materials. We conceptualize this pedagogical shift in terms of a move from an acquisition orientation to a contribution orientation. This change of orientation relates to one of several dimensions that we feel are critical for pedagogical decision making. We include a current example related to pedagogical dimensions and in particular to this contribution-oriented pedagogy.
