Wednesday 5 – Thursday 6 September 2012
University of Leicester
A day-and-a-half conference looking at Wikipedia, Wikiversity and related charitable projects, not in terms of educational resources, but educational practice, including collaboration, open review, and global participation. It’s a chance to talk about innovative work in your classroom, your institution or online community, and shape the future of Wikimedia UK’s work in this area
We will explore the ways these projects can support innovative education. We will discuss the Wikipedia Education Program (in which university students improve Wikipedia articles for course credit). We will learn from universities where the program is already embedded, exploring the educational opportunities and drawing lessons from the experience so far.
