Session: Real-World and Technology-Rich: Learning by Doing, Learning in
Context

**Using Wikipedia to Reenvision the Term Paper**

_Speaker(s)_
Andreas Brockhaus, Manager, Learning Technologies, University of
Washington Bothell
Associate Professor, Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences, University of
Washington Bothell

_Abstract_
To enhance the learning experience of a term paper, students were
required to publish their papers in Wikipedia. Publishing for a large
audience provided authentic feedback and encouraged students to do their
best work. Using Wikipedia also allowed students to connect with a
vibrant community and share their knowledge by making their papers
publicly accessible.

Event. The program and registration for the event are now live 

**Please note** that registration for this online focus session will
