Session Proposal–Teaching with Wikipedia

I would like to propose a session on teaching with Wikipedia.  I have been using the Wikipedia Education Foundation’s training in an upper-level, non-major history of science class.  I have found that the process and training from the WEF almost tricks students into having fun with research and writing. I plan to share the mechanics of the system as well as some of my frequent assessment techniques.  ~~Kate Sheppard
