Hi again, good winter!
My students are hard at work on their articles and I think they will be thrilled to share
their experiences learning Wikipedia with you. They are working on a wide range articles
to halo top
to Hanna Pennington
on>. I am sure they will
also have some questions for you about your involvement with Wikipedia.
Logistically, the class is in the Communications Building (CMU) at UW in room 304. This
room is right next door to my office, which is the open lab space of the Community Data
Science Collective. If you're interested, I can give you a little tour. The class
starts at 12:30, and I am planning on having your visit during the second half of the
class, starting at 1:15.
I've already heard from some of you who are planning on making it. I appreciate it so

Greetings! I am
I'm new to the list! Happy to be here!
I'm a graduate student at the University of Washington and I research online
collaboration. My PhD advisor is Benjamin Mako
who you may know.
I'm writing to introduce myself, and also to invite you all to join my class next
quarter. You see, I'm teaching a class on online communities, which was last taught by
Mako in the Fall of 2015. As before, a substantial part of this class has the students
learning Wikipedia and how to edit (using WikiEdu<wikiedu.org>). Last time, some of
you visited class to debrief with students about their experiences with Wikipedia. I think
that meeting Wikipedians in person can be a powerful learning experience, and may increase
the chances that students stay involved with Wikipedia beyond the course. I hope that
some of you would be willing to come visit my class on Thursday February 14th at 1:15.
Thank you for your generosity!
