Wiki Education (Workshop)

Register: https://library.osu.edu/researchcommons/event/wiki-education

With the sheer volume of information now available on the internet, having trustworthy, accurate digital resources is more important than ever. The general public no longer only turns to publishers, subject matter experts, or even news outlets for most of their information; they also look to Wikipedia. But Wikipedia is edited by volunteers, with varying interests, educational contexts, and access to academic publications. The site still lacks detailed and accurate articles about all topics, in all languages, and many articles are inaccurate, misrepresented, or missing altogether.

That’s why Wiki Education, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving Wikipedia’s quality, equity, and reach is working to amplify the impact of your courses, libraries, and student research. By joining one of Wiki Education’s programs, you can help add reliable, accessible academic information to the world’s largest free encyclopedia. Any instructor, librarian or staff member may participate by assigning students to edit Wikipedia’s contentlearning how to contribute to Wikipedia themselves, or providing Wikipedia volunteers with remote access to scholarship related to your field.

During this workshop, we will discuss content gaps on Wikipedia, and we will encourage attendees to join our initiatives to close these gaps and make information more accessible and comprehensible to the public. Wiki Education staff will share: assignment template for student research projects; learning benefits for students and scholars; and details about Wiki Education’s suite of tools, trainings, and Wikipedia expertise available to program participants.

Bridging the Gap: Our Experience with Outreach Educational Activities as a Way to Expand Social Perspective (Lecture)

Register: https://library.osu.edu/researchcommons/event/apop

In the current worldwide political scenario, the perception individuals have of human diversity and cultural variation play an important role in shaping events on local, regional, national and international scales. Intolerance in particular plagues communities around the world, including our own. Much of this intolerance is ultimately the result of people not being able to properly contextualize human diversity, and therefore not being able to accept and incorporate the perspectives of others. The value in diversity is lost. This presentation tackles issues surrounding intolerance by discussing the role that outreach programs can play in broadening people’s perspectives and thereby, reducing different types of biases. Through a series of activities we created at the Department of Anthropology, with the participation of undergraduate, graduate and faculty volunteers, we are engaging in the development of interactive educational opportunities that explore the larger human biocultural context. Join us for this talk so we can share our experience and discuss our initiatives with educators, students, and researchers from different backgrounds.

This lecture is part of the Research Commons Presents Series (formerly Faculty Forum). Light refreshments will be served.

About our Speaker:

Mark Hubbe is an Associate Professor at the Department of Anthropology at OSU. He received his PhD from the University of São Paulo, Brazil, and has been living in the US since 2012. His research focuses primarily on the study of past populations from South America, and has contributed to our understanding of the settlement of the Americas as well as to the origins of social inequality among prehistoric Andean communities from the Atacama Desert. Since 2017, he has been coordinating the APOP (Anthropology Public Outreach Program), composed of undergraduate, graduate, and faculty volunteers dedicated to bridging the gap between the academic work and the broader public by promoting interactive educational activities about modern human diversity and the evolution of our species within and outside OSU. You can follow APOP’s activities at u.osu.edu/apop, and know more about Mark’s research at u.osu.edu/heads.
