International women’s day is coming soon! – Public Collaborative Wikipedia Editing (2).

Hello Everyone,

Are you interested in learning a new skill by an accredited Wikimedia UK trainer and supporting St Andrew’s women at the same time?!

I am conducting a series of Wikipedia editing events, where I will provide free training on Wikipedia editing and the available tools. I will be inviting participants to these events – three per event – to add and edit Wikipedia articles about notable women alumni of the University of St Andrews, such as Agnes Forbes Blackadder article, which we wrote in our last pilot event.

This is not part of my study, and I will not be collecting any data for my PhD research. It will only be about training three people at a time to edit and add St Andrew’s female alumni pages.

If you are a group of three people and you know an academic female who meets Wikipedia Notability criteria, I would love to train you to collaborate on writing a good article about her. No matter if she is a living person or not.

I am hosting the events from 2:00 pm until 5:00 pm at the School of Computer Science on the 4th of March, meeting room 1.19.

Please register your place or your group place through the following link:

Refreshments will be provided. If you are interested, please register or email me so I would send you further information.

Best wishes,
Abd
