Jialei Jiang, doctoral student in English Composition and Applied Linguistics, recently published "Teaching with Wikipedia: A Webinar on Critical Approaches to Wikipedia-based Writing Pedagogy."
In this multimodal essay, Jiang reviews a recent webinar organized by the Wikipedia-based Education teaching circle at IUP. The webinar, which explored ways to cultivate students' critical literacy through Wikipedia-based assignments, was organized by
Dr. Matthew Vetter (English Department) and featured a presentation from Samantha Weald, outreach manager for the Wiki Education Program. Following Samantha’s talk, teacher-participants—including doctoral students and teaching associates Oksana Moroz, Wenqi Cui, Jiawei
Xing, Lara Hauer—shared their visions for developing and revising Wikipedia-based pedagogies.
