    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Feminist Wikipedians, led initially by Adrianne Wadewitz, have been organizing edit-a-thons to train women, queer communities, and people of color to edit Wikipedia to address gender and racial bias. Wadewitz worked with the WikiEd Foundation and FemTechNet to develop a collection of assignments and teaching materials collected as part of the Feminist Wiki-Storming. Here, we have an example of a smaller assignment focused around a course text. The assignment asks students to become familiar with Wikipedia as a platform, become proficient in writing in an encyclopedic style, and learn to draft an entry that passes Wikipedia standards while also being critical of Wikipedia’s flaws. Elsewhere, the assignment has been adapted by FemTechNet to include critical questions about gender bias, inclusion, and deletion debates in Wikipedia. Other artifacts in the collection include learning objectives, sample assignments, an assignment builder, and tutorials.
