Christina Carney, Assistant Professor in Women's & Gender Studies at MU, shares how she uses the WikiEdu Wikipedia Student Program's free tools and training in her classes.

She assigns students to write or enhance Wikipedia articles, empowering them to share their knowledge of course-related topics that are missing or underrepresented. The Wikipedia Student Program is accepting submissions for the Fall 2023 term.
