Bibliographic Instruction SIG Meeting

Using Wikipedia in Teaching Information Literacy at the New Jersey Institute of Technology

Davida Scharf, Director of Reference & Instruction at the Van Houten Library of the New Jersey Institute of Technology, will discuss how turning undergraduates into Wikipedia editors has proven to be a highly engaging and effective learning experience for students in evaluation, attribution, and documentation of sources. The result of a faulty/librarian collaboration, this project combined student engagement with the alignment of learning objectives, learning experiences, and outcomes assessment, all of which played important roles in its success. Tips and resources for using Wikipedia as a teaching tool will enable participants to adapt and construct their own Wikipedia learning experiences.
