Wikipedia Edit-a-thon "I made the Internet smarter today" (Researcher@Library Week 2018)
Various: Parkville, Southbank and online
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. The day will end with cheese and refreshments at Parkville.
