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
