Hounouring Indigenous Writers: Making a Difference Editing Wikipedia

March 9 at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

free

Wikipedia is a multi-lingual, web-based, free encyclopedia based on a model of open community-generated knowledge.

The community-driven nature of Wikipedia is meant to support Wikipedia’s goal of providing “…every single person on the planet is given free access to the sum of all human knowledge.” However, information gaps, biases, exclusions, and assumptions about neutrality means more work is needed to change this space.

This session will cover:

  • Creating an account
  • Norms and conventions for editing
  • Creating and editing an article, adding categories, and citations.
  • How to get involved at UBC with Honouring Indigenous Writers Wikipedia editing and Art + Feminism

Join us for this hands-on session on how to edit Wikipedia.
