On Tuesday, February 16, I’ll join the Greenfield Digital Center for the History of Women’s Education and library at Bryn Mawr College to discuss how, and why, instructors build Wikipedia assignments into coursework.
Bryn Mawr is an historic women’s college, so my presentation will focus on one of the major initiatives of the Year of Science, which is closing the content gap on women’s contributions to science.
I met our host, Dr. Monica Mercado, at the National Women’s Studies Association’s conference in 2014. I’m thrilled to be working together to share our programs, and the NWSA Wikipedia initiative, with Bryn Mawr’s faculty. Bryn Mawr has graciously opened its doors to other instructors in the area. Any higher education instructor in the Philadelphia area who is interested in joining us for this workshop, please register here.
- Tuesday, February 16, 4:30–6:00 p.m., Thomas Hall, Quita Woodward Room, Library & Information Technology Services campus. For directions, contact Dr. Monica Mercado at mmercado[at]brynmawr.edu
