Wiki Education connects higher education to the publishing power of Wikipedia. Bridging Wikipedia and academia creates opportunities for any learner to contribute to, and access, open knowledge.
What we do:
Our Classroom Program supports university instructors who incorporate Wikipedia assignments into their courses. Students develop writing, research, critical thinking, and media literacy skills. Along the way, they expand access to free knowledge through Wikipedia.
Our Visiting Scholars Program connects university departments with Wikipedia editors, who then create high-quality Wikipedia articles on topics of interest to both parties.
Our Educational Partnerships support academic associations as they expand and improve Wikipedia’s coverage of their field.
Our Wikipedia Fellows pilot engages academics in editing high-impact articles on Wikipedia in their area of expertise.
Future of Facts: Participants improve Wikipedia’s coverage in topic areas that are key for an informed citizenry. In doing so, they empower millions of Wikipedia’s readers to contribute to society and participate in public affairs based on factual and reliable information.
Communicating Science: As an extension of the 2016 Year of Science initiative, students continue to contribute to scientific topics on Wikipedia. These future scientists learn about science communication, while improving Wikipedia’s science coverage for millions of readers worldwide.
