IET Events for Faculty
Wikipedia, although frequently the first stop for anyone seeking general information about a topic, has been criticized as having no place in a true academic endeavor. Recently, however, two Franklin & Marshall professors have turned this notion on its head by “adopting” the writing and editing of a Wikipedia article as a class.
In the third session, participants will evaluate actual Wikipedia articles and make edits following Wikipedia best practices.
This event is open to F&M faculty only.
