A training event took place at the Bodleian Library on 3 December 2015 for University of Oxford postgrads who are participating in the Free Speech Debate project. It was led by Martin Poulter in his capacity as the Bodleian's Wikimedian In Residence.

The next step will be a meeting in January 2016 to look at what the participants have done with articles related to freedom of speech in their own languages.
