An evolving model of the Wikipedia student assignment

Type of session:

Lecture (15-30 min)

Session theme(s):



Since its inception in 2010 as a small pilot program, the Wikipedia student program has grown and expanded immensely. From its origins as a program within the Wikimedia Foundation, the program has spread and is now supported by the Wikipedia & Education User Group, and administered by Wiki Education in the United States and Canada, and by various national chapters around the world. Over the time, the original basic program has evolved to meet the needs of organizers and educators.

In this presentation we will discuss the evolution of the assignment with a focus on how things have developed from our perspective as Wiki Education staff.
