Wikipedia in the University--Friday Public Affairs Discussion Group
It's ubiquitous but is Wikipedia acceptable as a reference resource for scholarly work at the university? Join us this week as the Public Affairs Discussion Group talks about using the free, open access encyclopedia instead of traditional reference tools.
• Fri. Nov. 18: Wikipedia in the University.
Peter Shulman, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of History, CWRU.
Technology meets communication in new ways for Peter Shulman as his students cite Wikipedia in their research assignments. Join in a lively discussion with Peter as he shares how he's encouraging his students to develop their critical thinking skills about basic sources...including Wikipedia.
Sponsored by the Center for Policy Studies, this week's venue is changed to the Guilford House 1st Floor Lounge 12:30 pm - 1: 30 pm. Stop in the Cramelot cafe in the library & pick up beverages and lunch items for the short walk to Guilford and this week's discussion.
