Hands-on Wikipedia Editing Workshops open to all staff and postgraduate students

A few weeks ago Roger Bamkin gave a very informative and entertaining TDC talk on his Monmouthpedia project. His slides are here.

There was a great deal of interest in learning the arcane art of editing Wikipedia so Roger has kindly agreed to run two hands-on workshops for us. The sessions will be held in the TDC and are open to all staff and postgraduate students across the university. Refreshments will be provided.

To help with planning, please indicate your intention to attend here.

Tuesday 6th November 2pm - 4pm INTRODUCTORY SESSION 
The basic skills of editing Wikipedia

Tuesday 20th November 2pm - 4pm FOLLOW-UP SESSION
Come back after two weeks of practice to report on your progress and troubleshoot any difficulties.

What to bring
Your own laptop, tablet or other device to work on. This is essential for participation!
- Roger suggests that, if you wish, you might like to bring with you the url of an existing Wikipedia article that you would like to improve.
