My real name is Alexander Chow and, on many social media websites, my username is caorongjin, the pinyin form of my Chinese name (simplified Chinese: 曹荣锦; traditional Chinese: 曹榮錦; pinyin: Cáo Róngjǐn).
I work professionally as a senior lecturer in the School of Divinity, University of Edinburgh, in the areas of Christian theology and world Christianity. Some of my academic writings can be found listed on my academic blog or on Academia.edu.
Wikipedia in the classroom
In early 2016, I read in the Times Higher Education and a related peer-reviewed journal article about how educators were using Wikipedia for course assignments. Inspired, I too thought it might be a good idea. The results can be found here:
- Wikipedia:University of Edinburgh/Selected Themes in World Christianity (Autumn 2016)
- Wikipedia:University of Edinburgh/Selected Themes in World Christianity (Autumn 2017)
