Wikimedia UK is committed to supporting our volunteers. To encourage them to teach others how to edit Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects, we are running a weekend training workshop. This will take place on the weekend of 23-24 February in Newcastle, and we would particularly encourage anyone from the North East and Scotland to attend.
The workshop will be delivered by a professional training company and aims to improve delegates’ abilities to deliver any training workshop. It’s especially relevant to anybody who already runs Wikimedia-related training, or is very interested in doing so in near future.
The workshop is a chance to:
Get accredited and receive detailed feedback about your presenting and training skills
Get general trainer skills which you can then apply when e.g. delivering specific Wikipedia workshops
Share your skills with others
Help design a training programme that serves Wikimedia UK in the long term.
The course will run from 9:30 am-6:30pm on Saturday and 9am-5pm on Sunday. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided. We should also be able to cover travel and accommodation if you let us know in advance.
