WIKIPEDIA ASSIGNMENT COURSE (SP 2020)

For an intro research methods course at Boston University, I had students learn how to become Wikipedia editors through an assignment sequence you can find here:  Writing Studio ST112

 

In one semester, a class of 13 students completed over 180 edits, added almost 3,000 words, and 28 references to Wikipedia (see image).

I am committed to open-access, student-success driven models of teaching and research.
