Making a Better Wikipedia (The Innovators)

Posted on 2/22/2020 10:40:27 PM

Matthew Vetter is an assistant professor of English who studies Wikipedia and uses it in his classroom.

He’s found that asking students to write for Wikipedia increases their motivation and changes their attitudes about writing. And by teaching students how to edit Wikipedia, he empowers them to make Wikipedia better and more representative for everyone.

This production is episode 3 of The Innovators, a series about IUP students, faculty, and staff who are doing innovative things: new ideas, new ways of doing things, and new inventions.
