I teach at the University of Sydney.

Teaching with Wikipedia:

I have been using Wikipedia as a platform for writing assessments in undergraduate coursework since 2012 and developed of Wikipedia Education Program at the University of Sydney in 2013.

In 2016, two colleagues and I received a grant to develop a credit bearing unit of study in the University of Sydney's new curriculum. The following year we received an international Innovation in Teaching award from for the project from the Open University of Hong Kong. I now teach 2 credit bearing units using Wikipedia as a writing platform.

Symposia and editathons:

In April 2013, Wikimedia AU and I cohosted the first Wikipedia in Higher Education Symposium at the University of Sydney, and hosted a second colloquium in March 2014. In 2014 I created online collaboration opportunities between students at the University of Sydney and University of Mississippi, and began research projects in partnership with Robert E. Cummings, winner of the MLA's Mina P. Shaugnessy Prize, and author of Lazy Virtues: Teaching Writing in the Age of Wikipedia.

In June 2014 with major contributions from lead tutor, I ran the first Wadewitz Tribute Editathon at the University of Sydney, and participated that year in a range of Editathons in the US, Canberra and the University of Sydney's Vice Chancellor's Wikibombing to recognise our women of science. I have continued to host Wadewitz Tribute Editathons since 2015.

In June 2019, with Doctor 17, I organised WOW Worlds of Wikimedia conference at the University of Sydney.
