The (not really) Secret Life of Wikipedia,” Lecture & discussion with Cliff Lampe, Assistant Professor, UM School of Information
11 March 2013, 1-2:30PM @ Hatcher Gallery
Free and open to the public
Professor Lampe discusses the various social structures that have evolved in Wikipedia, and how these processes affect the quality of content that appears on Wikipedia. Lampe covers social processes and tools that have been developed in Wikipedia, how these tools can be used to both help people more critically consume content from the site and begin contributing to the site, and how norms and rules are enforced in Wikipedia.

Lightning Talks: What Open Education Means to Me
12 March 2013, 2-3:30PM @ Clark Library
Free and open to the public
Students and staff from across the University of Michigan share their ten-minute stories about using or creating resources that are shared and reused across institutions or about using participatory, collaborative or transparent practices in education or research settings.
