The latest version of this textbook on truth commissions, written by Bishop’s University students, is now published. Students write Wikipedia articles for their course work and the articles are then published in book form. This project is possible thanks to the Wiki Educational Foundation.
Wiki Edu wrote about the previous edition in 2018:
Wikipedia is a unique platform through which to engage students. They learn to collaborate with each other and with other Wikipedia users as they distill course topics into concise, well-researched, heavily cited articles for the general public. The exercise strengthens research, writing, collaboration, and digital literacy skills – all while providing a public service. Students make academic information (often restricted behind paywalls) available to anyone with internet connection worldwide. Wikipedia is the ultimate open educational resource.
New articles in this edition include items on Peru, Algeria, Ghana, Nigeria, Rwanda, Myanmar and Maine / Wabanaki confederacy. Articles can be read via Wikipedia by clicking the links below. The book can be previewed and ordered via Pedia Press.
