Intro to Wikipedia

  • Our mission
  • What we have so far
  • Commons and others
  • How does WMUK it in

Wikipedia editing surgeries

Running a series of Wikipedia training sessions, with at least initially pump priming it by offering our trainers.


Translatathons

Building on the UCL event, offering to run an event for London region Language course leaders on using Wikipedia for translation tasks for students.


Photo contests

Both organisations run photo contests, this could build synergies.
