You already know students are reading Wikipedia — why not have them write Wikipedia?

Wikipedia assignments connect your course to the world outside of the classroom. They transform a traditional writing assignment into one that engages students with an authentic writing experience while boosting digital and information literacy, critical thinking skills, and knowledge of research methods.

By writing for Wikipedia, students practice fact-based writing, research, collaboration, and critical thinking. All the while, they’ll be making a meaningful contribution to a free knowledge resource used by millions of people around the world.

In this workshop, Wiki Education's LiAnna Davis will walk through the benefits of a Wikipedia assignment and how to get started.
