Active Learning/Active Citizenship (ALAC) was a three-year project concerned with producing multimedia materials to assist in the teaching of citizenship in higher education. The major outcome was a website containing a range of multimedia resources on citizenship. As part of the dissemination activity, the ALAC team held a whole-day workshop, where the participants were invited to join with them in exploring the utility and functionality of the site with the aim of producing a jointly written journal article. This piece describes the activities of that day and suggests this method as a useful and innovative dissemination tool.
