Tech Talk: Teaching with (by Adding to) Wikipedia 2/16 4:30pm

Posted February 9th, 2016 at 9:48 am.

The Greenfield Digital Center for the History of Women’s Education and LITS are pleased to partner with the Wiki Education Foundation to discuss​ how and why instructors might consider building Wikipedia assignments into coursework.

Tuesday, February 16th at 4:30 p.m.
Quita Woodward Room
To register:

Jami Mathewson, Educational Partnerships Manager at Wiki Ed, will introduce the resources and tools available to support instructors teaching with Wikipedia. Jami will bring ideas from the NWSA women’s studies initiative, and share new plans for 2016’s Wikipedia Year of Science — including ways for instructors and students to join efforts aimed at increasing the representation of women in science on Wikipedia.

Bring your devices, your questions, and your ideas! All are welcome.

Please note that this workshop begins later and runs longer than the Tuesday tech talks typically do. Snacks will be available in Quita Woodward starting at 4pm, so please feel free to come early.
