Summary

This project develops a methodological tool aimed at improving learning in different fields, such as literature, culture, and philosophy, through the writing of wikipedia entries from the perspective of gender.

This tool has three main purposes:

  1. To introduce a perspective of gender in the joint reflection (professors and students) about content.
  2. To develop skills that are useful and necessary to the transfer of scientific knowledge in any field: analysis of primary bibliography to extract important information, production of a well-written and structured informative text, dominion of technical editing online tools, and critical ability to evaluate.
  3. To transfer the resulting information to society through online public platforms, such as wikipedia. 

This project is part of the Group of Teaching Innovation Lletra de Dona (GINDOC-UB/155).
