WEBQUEST AND EDUBLOG: AN EXPERIENCE IN THE UNIVERSITY EDUCATION OF FOOD TOXICOLOGY
The present work relates our 2007 educative experience with the development of a webquest and creation of an edublog in connection with a university course, “Food Toxicology of the Nutrition Carrier,” conducted in two universities. The topic of “risk analysis applied to non caloric sweeteners,” was chosen because of its central importance to the subject and the amount of information available in the network. Group activities were organized inside and outside the classroom, at flexible times according to the interests of the students who were required to make presentations and produce a final work that presented their research findings and conclusions. The webquest was deployed as an organizing tool for teaching activity and for the students´ assignments. The blog facilitated exchange of information between groups and motivated students to overcome quickly the initial difficulties of its application.
