| Students and instructors working with the Wiki Education Foundation (Wiki Ed) have added thousands of new articles and millions of words to the English Wikipedia. Their work has not just expanded Wikipedia as a whole but has targeted academic areas where Wikipedia's coverage is limited. Through a strategic partnership with the National Women's Studies Association (NWSA), students in our program have contributed 4% of all content added to topics related to women’s and gender studies. Adam Hyland (Wiki Ed) and Patti Provance (NWSA) will share overall metrics, highlight student contributions, and show how students are impacting public scholarship within the discipline.

| WikiProject Women in Red (WiR) was founded in July 2015 at Wikimania Mexico City. It has created over 17,000 articles in its first 10 months of existence on a budget of US$0. WiR's scope addresses content gender gap by creating women's biographies and articles about women's works, broadly construed. WiR has hosted 16 virtual edit-a-thons including those which focused on Asian Pacific American women, MENA (Middle Eastern North African) women, Black women's history, Jewish women's hIstory, and LGBTQ women. This presentation addresses diversity event planning, execution, and post-morteum in the context of content gender gap. It provides links to the mentioned edit-a-thons, associated redlink lists, comm plans (invitations, thank you notes, barnstars). It addresses WiR's social media strategy (e.g. @wikiwomeninred). The intended outcome is for attendees to be able to replicate WiR's "toolkit" across other language Wikipedias.

This workshop will offer participants an opportunity to explore the match/mismatch among the values of writing courses, the writing studies community, and the Wikipedia community. Working from well-tested assignments in use at two Boston-area universities, from programmatic learning goals, and from Wikipedia statements of community values, participants will identify points of opportunity for these communities to interact and benefit from the resources available at institutions of higher learning, as well as identify potential points of tension and how such tensions might be turned to constructive ends.

| An increasing number of people are editing Wikipedia in educational and workplace settings, typically as a part of their educational assignments through the WikiEd program, or as employees of GLAM organizations.  This presentation will provide a brief explanation of the "non hostile working environment" for women in workplaces and schools which appears in US civil rights laws.  We will also take a look at some newer terms such as "cyberexploitation," "doxing," and "revenge porn" that can be useful in describing difficult interactions online which have a gender- related component.
