Abstract

Wikimedians at NYU: Pedagogy, Curriculum, and Community of Practice curricular development project seeks to understand how Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects are being used across NYU’s classrooms and to expand the Division of Libraries’ support of this activity.  Building on the Division’s established Wikimedians at NYU Community of Practice, the PIs will administer a survey to NYU faculty across the campuses to assess the curricular use of Wikimedia.  The results of the survey will be used to develop library programming in New York and Shanghai, grow the community of practice beyond the Division of Libraries, and to build a curricular toolkit to support Wikimedia activities at NYU.
