Another FaCTS Mellon Project

Making Psychology of Gender Knowledge Public via WikiEdu

by Dr. Wyndolyn M Ludwikowski

I aim to restructure my interdisciplinary Psychology of Gender course to address the 2017-2018 FaCTS theme of Making Knowledge Public Using Educational Technology. specifically, students will create outreach-based WikiEdu contributions to educate the public about important psychology of gender topics. The proposed project intends to improve students' digital literacy and reduce the gender differences in Wikipedia content contributions by increasing interest and confidence in digital skills while exploring the roles of personality and values on the relations between these variables. The proposed project aspires to implement an inverted model, incorporate a global perspective, has a scholarship of teaching and learning component, and is directly tied to the University's mission.
