Teaching about WikiLeaks
by Derek Bruff, CFT Assistant Director
You’ve probably seen a news story or two about the whistle-blower site WikiLeaks recently (or perhaps a few hundred). Given that the WikiLeaks story is relevant to so many disciplines (political science, computer science, business, journalism, law), it’s not surprising that college and university instructors are including discussion of WikiLeaks in their courses. The Chronicle of Higher Education‘s Wired Campus blog featured a post the other day describing a couple of examples of WikiLeaks in the curriculum and invited readers to share their examples. I’m curious to know if you discussed WikiLeaks during your fall courses or if you have plans to discuss WikiLeaks in the spring. Please share your ideas and examples in the comments below!
