Wiki Education

Instructors and scholars in a variety of disciplines may be interested in Wiki Education, a nonprofit organization that "connects higher education to Wikipedia, ensuring that the world's most read source of information is more representative, accurate, and complete." Wiki Education offers multiple programs and initiatives to suit a range of needs and audiences. For example, their classroom program, Teach with Wikipedia, provides university instructors with tools and resources for assigning students to write a Wikipedia article (rather than, say, a research paper), thus enabling students to learn valuable research, critical thinking, and communication skills while also "contributing cited, well-founded information" to the internet. Educators may also want to check out the initiative's Future of Facts and Communicating Science. At institutional and organizational levels, Wiki Education offers the Visiting Scholars Program and Educational Partnerships, both of which provide opportunities for academic associations and university libraries and departments to share "reliable, vetted information about their discipline with the world."
