Inquiry, Critique, and Dissemination of Knowledge: Graduate Students Contributing to Wikipedia
Simmons, Nicola
Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching, v6 p18-22 2013
Graduate students use existing knowledge and are ultimately expected to add to that knowledge. Students in a Masters of Education entry course were asked to find a Wikipedia page related to the course topics, critique it, and make improvements to it to begin to develop these skills. In this paper, I examine ways in which their perspectives were transformed (Mezirow, 1991) regarding their roles in knowledge use and construction and how they grew as a result.
