Wikipedia for Education: Strategies for Learning and Engagement
Wikipedia is “the largest and most popular general reference work on the World Wide Web” (Wikipedia, 2018). This hands-on workshop will provide an overview of how Wikipedia and/or other wiki authoring systems can be used by educators from a wide range of disciplines to have students engage in authentic, meaningful learning activities including writing, editing, and publishing for peer-review. Strategies for using Wikipedia in your classroom will be explored, as will related tools and applications to enhance the learning experience when engaging in Wikipedia-based activities.
Two sessions will be held for this workshop: one in person on TRU campus, another online via Big Blue Button and/or Greenlight web conferencing. Participants are free to attend either session, or both. *Online sessions will be available to the general public, as well as TRU faculty, staff, and students.
Upon registration, you will receive email confirmation which may include readings or resources related to the session. Enrollment for TRU campus sessions is limited to 15 participants per session. There is no limit to enrollment for online sessions.
