Wikithon: Develop Wiki Editing skills.
Wednesday 24th June 2020 1.30-3.30 (PM)
We have partnered with The Institution of Engineering and Technology, Women’s Engineering Society and the biographical project Electrifying Women, to bring you a Wikithon and training in being a Wikipedia editor. It is centred around the entries for women, but is not exclusive to women joining in as editors.
This isn’t as daunting as it sounds! Tuition will be given during the session, and resources will be supplied in advance.
Join us to celebrate the women in science, technology and engineering that deserve a more prominent place in the online historical record. You’ll develop your digital skills and learn how to edit Wikipedia in order to harness the power of the web to share your knowledge.
Complete beginners and experienced editors are both welcome to attend – we’ll provide training for anyone new to editing. If you’ve spotted an article that needs improving, bring along your queries and we’ll see what we can do to help. If you’re new to the subject, we’ll suggest articles to update or subjects to research.
