Wikipedia
Initiative

 

More than 3,300 psychological scientists and their students have joined the APS Wikipedia Initiative (APSWI)

 

 

Editing

Professors are making editing articles part of course writing assignments, in which students contribute content to Wikipedia instead of writing a traditional research paper.

Assessment

Others are using their expertise to evaluate the quality of Wikipedia articles about core topics in psychological science in order to highlight those most in need of revision.

To facilitate classroom activities, APS has partnered with The Wikipedia Education Program supported by the Wiki Education Foundation. Wiki Ed has online training materials for instructors and students, volunteers to provide support, and handouts for students.  Check out Resources for Instructors for a full list of resources available from Wiki Ed.
