This wiki serves as the hub for the International Responses to Crime Related Problems project 2020 that is being undertaken by undergraduate students at Franklin University in the USA and the University Centre at Blackburn College in the UK.  

 

Project Rationale

This wiki serves as the hub for the International Responses to Crime Related Problems project 2020 that is being undertaken by criminology and criminal justice undergraduate students at Franklin University in the USA and the University Centre at Blackburn College in the UK. 

 

The enhancement of knowledge and understanding of different countries' legal system, laws and police practices is the aim of this project. This will be achieved by using the theoretical background of comparative criminal justice/criminology to investigate two detailed case studies of international responses to crime related problems. 

 

This project will provide all participants with real experience of international, collaborative research and scholarship. It needs your collaborative study with your academic counterparts from another country to inform levels of criminological knowledge and understandings. This collaboration will be evidenced by the posting of formal answers to the tasks on the individual pages of your team’s pbworks wiki and their spaces for less formal comments that help your team’s progress through the tasks.  

 

The views of all participants are extremely important so in addition to these methods of communication, a pre-project survey should be completed before you begin your work on the project. You will be given a similar survey to undertake at the project’s conclusion. 

 

How Do I Take Part?

The project takes the form of an online course and offers an innovative and unique opportunity to engage with learners from across the Atlantic Ocean on issues and topics that are criminal justice specific but that span the globe in their impact.  It is an ongoing assignment that is divided into four tasks and will create partnerships of students from universities at Franklin and Blackburn that create their own wikis to explore the topics in the project.  

 

Therefore, you have all been allocated a place in a team for the project and these teams are required to build a wiki in a similar style to that of the project’s hub. The project teams have mixed membership between US and UK students and you will be emailed an invitation to join your team’s wiki. After accepting this invitation, you will have full editorial rights on that wiki. 

 

The project hub wiki is an open access resource and can be read anywhere but each team’s wiki is private and therefore only accessible by the students on that team and the academic staff leading the project. These staff members are: Dr. Chenelle Jones from Franklin and Belinda Child from Blackburn.

 

Please now go to the Instructions page on the Navigator sidebar – this provides the essential information for the project's deadlines and formation of teams. If you have joined the project late or ever feel behind, please read the Directions page for the schedule of work.
