What: Creating a "Climate" of Information Access: How Students Are 
Tackling Climate Change on Wikipedia

  * When: Monday, March 27, 9:00 AM Pacific
  * Description: The realities of climate change are becoming
    increasingly present and having palpable consequences throughout the
    globe. As the effects of climate change become more prevalent, it's
    critical that people have access to reliable, current, and clear
    information about climate change. In this session, you'll learn how
    students at the post-secondary level are improving content related
    to climate change on Wikipedia as part of their coursework. Helaine
    Blumenthal, Senior Program Manager at Wiki Education, will speak
    generally about the immense impact student editing is having on
    Wikipedia. She'll be joined by three faculty whose students are
    directly tackling topics related to climate change on Wikipedia.
    Jennifer Glass is Associate Professor in the School of Earth and
    Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Institute of Technology. Julio
    Postigo is Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography at
    Indiana University. Pam Rittelmeyer is a Post-doctoral Researcher at
    the University of California, Davis. Climate change has many
    dimensions, and each speaker will reflect on how their students have
    addressed different aspects of climate change on Wikipedia.
