Using Wikipedia to Reenvision the Term Paper

Friday, October 26 | 9:10AM–10:00AM | Ballroom 6C
The structure of the traditional term paper can limit its educational value. To make the assignment more meaningful, students published their papers in Wikipedia. This session will examine how publishing for a large online community motivated students to do better work and deal with issues of voice, knowledge, and community.
