A presentation by LiAnna Davis, Director of Programs - Wiki Education Foundation
Thursday, March 19, 9:00 a.m. - Knight Library Browsing Room
You already know students are reading Wikipedia — why not have them write Wikipedia?
LiAnna Davis, the Wiki Education Foundation's Director of Programs, will present on the topic of teaching with Wikipedia. Wikipedia assignments connect your course to the world outside of the classroom. By writing for Wikipedia, students practice fact-based writing, research, collaboration, and critical thinking. All the while, they’ll be making a meaningful contribution to a free knowledge resource used by millions of people around the world.
There’ll be a delectable selection on display in Knight Library’s Browsing Room when the University of Oregon Libraries Edible Book Festival returns on Wednesday, April 1.
