The Research Project (throughout the semester)

The research project will be a group project for which you will research a current Wikipedia entry on a subject relevant to our class with the objective to update and improve it. Much of this project is about process, as you and your group members will be required to complete the Wikiedu training modules on a weekly basis as you work toward completing the research, writing, and editing of your entry. Many more details to come during the second week of the semester.

Wikipedia Research Project Presentations Due: Wednesday, May 11, 2022
