for an exciting upcoming panel on how faculty and students are tackling
climate change on Wikipedia!
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.
