Teaching with Wikipedia

December 9, 2019, 12:00pm to 2:00pm
Intended audience: 
Academic Support Staff, Faculty, Graduate Students, Instructors

Please join the AC Center and the Wiki Education Foundation Educators as we discuss how to build Wikipedia assignments into your courses and discover some of the new tools, which support and enhance teaching with Wikipedia. As an educational tool, the development of Wikipedia articles allows students to create collaborative work with a visible impact on a global audience.

Whether adding new sources to existing Wikipedia pages or creating new pages on notable topics, students gain deeper insight into their course material and learn to evaluate critically the reliability of sources. With faculty and students reporting enthusiasm and high levels of motivation for the Wikipedia assignment over the more traditional, Wikipedia assignments have the potential to deliver education that goes beyond a semester.
