It is primarily meant for students in SC2218: Anthropology and the Human Condition (a course in the Department of Sociology at NUS. But others are welcome to join, comment and contribute (constructively, please!!). The site is found at:

All students in SC2218 are required to join (and contribute to) the Wiki. Details about this can be found at the Wiki website.

  1. Well, I haven’t signed up and gone to look just yet, so if its answered there just tell me to shut up and go look. But…..I wonder if you have a grading philosophy for it, yet?

    I think the trickiest part of any collaborative educational effort is figuring out how to assign grades, that is, how to hold an individual responsible for the efforts of the group. I am stuck on that one, myself, at the moment. Any help/thoughts?
