The Future of Wikipedia in Education
The majority of students find Wikipedia ubiquitous and use it daily in their casual research as well as their academic study. What does this mean for educators? If students are using Wikipedia already, educators need to know how it works, and how to usefully work with it.
In this session, we explore how Wikipedia can be integrated into courses as a touchpoint for thinking about research, digital literacy, and critical thinking about the reliability of information. You'll learn about Wikipedia's founding pillars and core policies, its importance to the free knowledge movement, as well as its internal debates and challenges, particularly when used in an educational setting.
