UvA, FMG Wikipedia Editathon← Back to list of events
The Univeristy of Amsterdam (UvA) focusgroup Open (online) Education will organize an ‘editathon’ in Wikipedia for the UvA and FMG in particular in the week of Open Education (March 9-13). This will be held every afternoon of that week in De Brug, from 14:00-16:00 hrs. De Brug (Bridge) is at Roeterseiland Campus C building on the 4th floor, a new public space within UvA with a spectacular view and design.
Our goals are:
- to guide and help academic staff in the rules of engagement in wikipedia so that their contributions are more likely to (smoothly) succeed in reaching publication in wikipedia
- highlight how wikipedia plays a role in both research and education valorization and by extension, the impact of editing in wikipedia
- to increase academic exposure and contribute to the worldwide open knowledgebase regarding areas of research of the UvA and FMG in particular
