Instructors receive awards for Wikipedia work in the classroom

From the very beginning, we’ve had our champions — students, faculty, and institutions alike — who have recognized what a Wikipedia writing assignment can achieve for student learning and for the world. Thanks to word-of-mouth, as well as the great work these individuals have accomplished using our resources (work that speaks for itself), more and more faculty are getting involved in this open educational practice. Not only that, but institutions are now awarding their faculty for incorporating Wikipedia into their pedagogy.

It’s been a busy year for Wikipedia in pedagogy. And we couldn’t be more thrilled to hear about your successes. If you’ve been recognized for incorporating Wikipedia into your undergraduate or graduate curriculum, please let us know by mailing Wikipedia Student Program Manager Helaine Blumenthal at
