Alexander Chow[edit]


My real name is Alexander Chow and, on many social media websites, my username is caorongjin, the pinyin form of my Chinese name (simplified Chinese: ; traditional Chinese: ; pinyin: Cáo Róngjǐn).

I work professionally as an lecturer in the School of Divinity, University of Edinburgh, in the areas of Christian theology and world Christianity.[1][2] Some of my academic writings can be found listed on my academic blog or on Academia.edu.

Wikipedia in the classroom[edit]

In early 2016, I read in the Times Higher Education[3] and a related peer-reviewed journal article[4] about how educators were using Wikipedia for course assignments. Inspired, I too thought it might be a good idea. The results can be found here:

Red links[edit]

The following are some of the Red Linked pages which I would like to eventually help to create.
