Event Description

How people consume, produce, and share information is rapidly changing, and pedagogical praxes need to evolve in order to meet these new challenges. In this roundtable, four historians who have adopted open pedagogical practice into their curricula by incorporating Wikipedia assignments into their courses explored the role Wikipedia can play in tackling many of the challenges facing Humanities education today, and how you can integrate this pedagogical activity into your own teaching. This event was organized in partnership with Wiki Education.
