I am a Wikipedian and Senior Lecturer in Writing Studies, School of Literature, Art and Media, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, University of Sydney
I have been using Wikipedia as a platform for writing assessments in undergraduate coursework since 2012 and developed of Wikipedia Education Program at the University of Sydney in 2013.
In April that year, Wikimedia AU and I cohosted the first Wikipedia in Higher Education Symposium at the University of Sydney, and hosted a second colloquium in March 2014. In 2014 I created online collaboration opportunities between students at the University of Sydney and University of Mississippi.
In June 2014 with major contributions from lead tutor lobsters, I ran the first Wadewitz Tribute Editathon at the University of Sydney, and participated that year in a range of Editathons in the US, Canberra and the University of Sydney's Vice Chancellors Wikibombing to recognise our women of science. With colleagues, I have regularly hosted Wadewitz Tribute Editathons since 2015.
I am co-editor of WikiStudies , an interdisciplinary journal devoted to research and scholarship on the social production of knowledge in the digital age
