"Most inquiry starts at Wikipedia, whether we like it or not," writes columnist Casper Grathwohl in the Chronicle of Higher Education. "So as students and scholars, we need to improve it." In this session, learn how top-tier universities across the country, including LSU, are increasing student learning of content, improving research and communication skills, and exposing students to global collaboration and feedback by contributing scholarly content to Wikipedia. See firsthand how Wikipedia has evolved into a valid teaching and learning tool and acquire the pedagogy and tech basics you need to bring effective Wikipedia assignments into your courseÃ‚â€”no experience necessary!
