Hi! I'm John.

I am the assistant director of the Office of Digital Learning and a lecturer in the History of Science Department at the University of Oklahoma. My primary Wikipedia interest is teaching students how to evaluate and edit Wikipedia to improve media literacy, history, and the history of science content of Wikipedia. My students often work on adding and editing information on notable women and Islamic figures in the STEM fields.
