Wikipedia is the world’s fifth most visited website. It is used by 87.5% students in their academic work but many (most?) don’t know they could also be editing it.

Researching for and writing Wikipedia articles is a great way to develop students’ information and digital literacy skills.

This workshop will cover the rationale for introducing Wikipedia editing into courses as well as presenting case studies from other universities and providing practical tips on taking this forward with your students. The workshop will be facilitated by Alex Duncan, a Subject Librarian at UAL and Richard Nevell, a Project Coordinator from WikimediaUK.
