  • What: In this panel, you'll hear from three different instructors who have incorporated Wikipedia assignments into their courses. The assignment is a simple, yet powerful concept. Instructors have their students contribute to Wikipedia as an assignment in their course, and students have the chance to make real world impact. Heidi Schutz is Associate Professor of Biology at Pacific Lutheran University. Katie Holt is Associate Professor of History; Latin American Studies; Global and International Studies Department Chair; Liaison to Digital and Visual Storytelling Pathway at the College of Wooster, and Tobias Fischer is Professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at the University of New Mexico. Join us as these three faculty discuss their different experiences running Wikipedia assignments in their courses. The program will be moderated by Helaine Blumenthal, Senior Program Manager at Wiki Education. To learn more about running a Wikipedia assignment, sign up at
