Wikipedia comes to the Beach Museum of Art on Aug. 8

Submitted by Cindi Morris

The Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art invites faculty to an informational session led by Alex Stinson, Wikipedian and K-State graduate student in English, on using Wikipedia editing in classroom instruction.

This program is intended to encourage participation in Wikipedia's development and inspire Wikipedians to write articles related to the Beach Museum of Art.

The session will be at 4 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 8, in the UMB Theater at the museum. Light refreshments will be served.

Please RSVP to adrianner@k-state.edu or call 785-532-7718. There is no charge for this session but we would like to provide adequate seating.
