Join us on Tuesday, November 15th at 9 AM Pacific to learn how you and your students can contribute to Wikipedia in an upcoming term!

Wikipedia is the go-to source for information for much of the world. However, few understand its inner workings, and even fewer still contribute to it, even though it's the encyclopedia that anyone can edit. It's not an exaggeration to say that Wikipedia plays a central role in today's information landscape. The English Wikipedia has more than 6 Million articles, which might seem relatively complete. Impressive though this number may be, Wikipedia is a dynamic enterprise in need of constant updating and expansion. Nowhere is this more true than in subjects related to historically marginalized and underrepresented populations, regions, and topic areas. You and your students can play a critical role in ensuring that Wikipedia is up-to-date, reliable, and above all, equitable.

Join Wiki Education on Tuesday, November 15th at 9:00 AM Pacific to learn how to run a Wikipedia assignment. During this session, you'll better understand how the assignment is structured, what types of support you'll receive from Wiki Education, and how the assignment may play out in your own class. Most of all, you'll see how you and your students can make a real difference in the types and quality of information the world has access to in your field of expertise.
