In March 2023, university students from Queen Mary University London and the University of Oxford will learn how to edit Wikipedia and upload to Wikimedia Commons as a part of a micro-internship program. 

Microinterns at the Mixed Museum

Microinterns at the Mixed Museum will spend 4 weeks as interns with the following schedule:

The interns will be able to ask questions and get support over Slack, use Zoom and email to keep in touch with both the Wikimedia and Mixed Museum teams, which will give them experience with tools essential for a remote work environment. 

This year’s internship programs are building on the success of ones that ran in 2022. Read intern Anastasia’s reflection on her internship experience last year and have a look at the dashboard.

Microinterns at Manar al-Athar

Two interns from the University of Oxford will spend a week as micro-interns in the Manar al-Athar digital photo archive. On their first day, the interns will be trained in how to edit Wikipedia and upload to Wikimedia Commons, and will spend the rest of the week editing, with support from the Connected Heritage team as well as Manar al-Athar staff. 

Have a look at the impressive dashboard from last year’s training at Manar al-Athar.
