Why Wikipedia: Assigning Wikipedia Editing for More Versatile Student Learning
Cassandra DellaCorte (University Library)
Wikipedia is much more than just a quick reference source; it’s a valuable learning tool. In this session, we will explore the skills students develop while editing, and the unique benefits of Wikipedia assignments. We will practice different approaches to Wikipedia editing to illustrate how it helps students comprehend scholarship. We will focus on the resources available for instructors and students, including a brief discussion of my position with the university as Wikipedian in Residence. 

Vetting (Mis)Information in the Digital Age
Adriane Stoner and Kristen Pengelly (College of Communication)
Fake news, biased news sites, bloggers, satire, citizen journalism, and the rise of opinionated YouTubers leave our students drowning in a sea of (mis)information while attempting to sort fact from fiction. Social media platforms have become a principle site of newsgathering for Millennials, making it increasingly difficult for them to critically analyze content. Learn how to help your students distinguish between sources, build understanding, and construct sound arguments.
