Before class[edit]

  1. Create a Wikipedia account
  2. While logged into your Wikipedia account, visit the course dashboard. If prompted, click "join course". This permits identification of your Wikipedia edits.
  3. Choose your topic from the recommendations below
  4. For your topic, read both the Wikipedia article and the academic article on that topic. Deep familiarity is not required, especially of the Wikipedia article.
  5. Expect that during the event, you will take information from the academic article and add it to the Wikipedia article.


"Editing Wikipedia articles on medicine", a classroom handout
9-9:30 - Welcome, and presentation on Wikipedia
9:30-10 - Discussion and demos
10-10:45 - Wikipedia editathon!
10:45-11 - check in
11-11:45 - wrap up, and review the work of others
11:45-12 - goodbye, and options for next steps

The event will start with a presentation which gives the Wikipedia community perspective on the following:

  1. To what extent does Wikipedia matter in health communication?
  2. How does one edit Wikipedia?
  3. What is Wikipedia's quality control system?

Following the presentation, anyone may ask any question about Wikipedia to get answers or demonstrations. Following this, it will be time for a Wikipedia "editathon", which is an event in which a group of people edit together. Desktop view, not mobile access, is preferred for this exercise, but come regardless. At the editathon, this is the goal:

  1. Come to the event with some published source of good information
  2. Identify a Wikipedia article where you think information from that source should go
  3. In your own words, take information from your source and add it to the Wikipedia article
  4. Cite your source. See referencing for beginners or better, learn at the event

Hopefully everyone at the event will add at least 1-3 sentences in the time we have. After making additions, since Wikipedia is public, participants will review the accuracy and quality of classmate's edits. As we leave, participants will be invited to check back on Wikipedia after some time (3-7 days) to see if there is any online community response to anyone's contributions.


  • All participants will gain the ability to describe the nature of health information on Wikipedia, and have more insight into health information on the Internet
  • Participants will get experience translating information from academic journals into layman health information
  • The information submitted to Wikipedia will be read by the public. Wikipedia readers will be better informed based on this event's contributions.

After some months, the class will get a report on the number of pageviews to the Wikipedia articles which the class edited. At any time after the event anyone may visit the tracking dashboard to check readership, a measurement of content added, and other statistics.
