Teaching with Wikipedia

Friday March 13, 2-3pm

165 Shields Library (Shields Library Instruction Lab, http://lib.ucdavis.edu/dept/instruc/maps.php?map=lil)

Description:

Students use Wikipedia — but have you ever thought of asking them to contribute content to Wikipedia? In this short workshop, LiAnna Davis and Jami Mathewson from the Wiki Education Foundation (http://wikiedu.org) will explain best practices for using Wikipedia as a teaching tool. In contributing content to Wikipedia, students gain skills in media literacy, fact-based writing, research, collaboration, and critical thinking. You’ll learn how Wiki Ed can support you and your students in this innovative service learning assignment.

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
