Nov 15, 2016: Writing for Wikipedia: Public Scholarship & Sharing to Learn

28 October 2016

We will share the experience of three courses from three different disciplines that have each incorporated a Wikipedia assignment to provide students with practice publicly sharing their scholarship. Each of the three instructors took a slightly different approach in terms of support from the library, academic technology, and Wikimedia Foundation. The presentation will cover our collective learning goals, assignment style, assessment rubrics, student work, and evaluation data.
