Wiki Wednesday: A Roundup of Wiki Posts


Teach, Research, and Publish with Wikis

Happy Wiki Wednesday! This Wiki Wednesday we’d like to look back at some of our recent posts with a buffet-style offering of links to earlier wiki-related entries as this November we celebrate Digital Writing Month and the 20th anniversary of wikis.

Participate in the DRC Wiki

In our DRC Wiki Call for Participation, we at the Sweetland DRC invite participation in our Digital Rhetoric wiki. Whether you’re an undergraduate or graduate student, a new PhD, or a seasoned research or instructor, we welcome your contributions to our collaboratively-built resource on digital rhetoric, computers and writing/composition, digital humanities, and related topics.

Want an example of how students might turn classwork into a public entry on the DRC Wiki? Check here:  DRC Wiki Entry Spotlight

Teach with Wikis

We’ve also been talking about teaching with wikis:

Wiki Wednesday Kicks off DigiWriMo: Literary Citzenship in Wikipedia

Wiki Wednesday: Using a Collaborative Classroom Wiki for Exam Study

Wiki Wednesday: Using Wikipedia’s History Function to Teach Writing Process

Publish with Wikis

We’ve also been thinking about concerns with representation and authorship, as well as the way that no technology is neutral, despite the familiarity of the interface, in Wiki Wednesday: #GWWI & The Wikipedia Gender Gap.

Want to look at ways wikis have been used in the last 20 years? Check out Wiki Wednesday: A Celebration of Wikis across the Web.

How about a look at the way wiki work can intersect with academic publishing in An Inside Look at Kairos’ PraxisWiki: A Conversation with Dundee Lackey?

As always, we at the Sweetland DRC invite you to become a DRC Wiki Editor today!
