Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

This Thursday there’s a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon in the UCR Rivera Library.

I’ve always wanted to get more into Wikipedia, and over the last week or so I finally started editing and adding information. Through the digital humanities group DHSoCal I learned about the work of Adrianne Wadewitz, who was a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Digital Learning and Research at Occidental College. Sadly though, she passed away recently.

This video from Wadewitz’s Wikipedia page is really great for showing why faculty and students should become active Wikipedians:

And if you’re interested in coming, send me an email and we can head over there together: sande010@ucr.edu

Digital Pedagogy workshop for TAs

Ever wondered what digital pedagogy is? Want to know what it’s like to teach online?

Wonder no more.

On February 19th, 2014 , join us for an introductory session on digital pedagogy.

We will introduce you to what Canvas is and does. We will show you some of the applications that make online teaching as good (and sometimes better) than Face-2-Face teaching, and we’ll discuss some of the best practices for online education in the physical classroom and in the virtual one.

Location: UC Riverside, Surge 170

Date and time: Wednesday February 19th 4-6PM

This is the first of hopefully many sessions aimed at training graduate students (and anyone else) in digital pedagogies.

Please RSVP to Juliette Levy – juliette.levy@ucr.edu

Juliette Levy teaches online and face-2-face in the History Department at UCR and at UC- Online.
