Submissions:2023/Engaging with Equity Programming
- Engaging with Equity Programming
- Education, Equity / Inclusion / Community Health, Research / Science / Medicine
Type of session:
Over the past year Wiki Education has pursued several equity initiatives. Each engages with this concept in its own way. In this panel discussion, Brianda Felix will be talking about how her role as a Wiki Expert supports the creation of articles about indigenous Native American history as well as issues in the Latinx community. Ia Ramjohn will be discussing how the Wiki Education student program can encourage the development of equity-focused articles. Andres Vera will explore how instructors in Wiki Education's student program promote the Wikipedia assignment to their colleagues, which increases the chances of adoption by new instructors. Will Kent will walk through a specific example of a course that improved climate change-oriented articles and how that plays a big role in improving equity on Wikipedia.
We hope attendees will be able to take away new ways to engage with equity issues, and adopt a diverse set of programming in new areas.
