Through the Wiki Education Foundation, instructors cultivate learning that enriches Wikipedia and universities where any learner can contribute to open scholarship and education for all. Rather than writing a term paper that ends up in a drawer, students contribute to a knowledge base the world uses every day - service learning with a lasting impact. In this session the presenters will introduce the Wiki Education Foundation and how the program works, and present recent research that suggests how to engage students better in commons production, and discuss the future of students in the commons.
