Description

UMWA presents the Wikipedia Edit-a-thon: "I made the Internet smarter today" a one-day event on Friday, 31 August 2018, where the research community comes together to improve Wikipedia content.


Join us for a relaxed day of Wikipedia editing, discussions, and upskilling. Hone your skills for communicating your research to the general public using Wikipedia as a platform! At lunchtime we will be joining colleagues at La Trobe University for a virtual "#shutupandWiki" session, an hour of intensive editing.


New and experienced Wikipedians welcome. There will be time for your own Wikipedia work, with helpful Wikipedians on hand throughout the day to show newcomers how to make edits and create articles. Not sure where to start? There'll be a list of articles for you to work on. You will also get to create your own Wikipedia-themed badge.


NB: While this is a full-day event you are welcome to drop in any time, but please let us know if and where you are coming by registering (Parkville, Southbank or Online). Visit the main Wikipedia Edit-a-thon: "I made the Internet smarter today" page for full event details.
