Improving science education and understanding through editing Wikipedia is a 2010 publication written in English by C. L. Moy, J. R. Locke, B. P. Coppola, A. J. McNeil and published in Journal of Chemical Education.
This paper describes a graduate-level class project centered on editing chemistry-related entries in Wikipedia. This project enables students to work collaboratively, explore advanced concepts in chemistry, and learn how to communicate science to a diverse audience, including the general public. The format and structure of the project is outlined and assessment metrics are discussed. A panel survey of current students provided an evaluation of the effectiveness of this project in contributing to the learning objectives of the course. Last, a discussion of the challenges involved in implementing this project is provided.
