Event Description

This workshop will introduce the various tools available for creating Wikidata classroom projects for students with a variety of skill levels and in various circumstances. Possible student project outcomes include data literacy, introduction to data science, Wikidata editing for diversity, equity, and inclusion, and editing Wikidata for the community. Please note that while they exist under the same parent organization, Wikidata is very different than Wikipedia and this workshop will focus on Wikidata. Registration is required by October 14th.

Note: To participate, you will need a free Wikidata account. Instructions will be provided in the workshop on how to create your account. 

Instructors who complete this workshop will be entered into a raffle for a library e-book purchase of their choice (up to $300). One participant will be randomly selected as a winner and Milner Library will purchase the e-book in support of textbook affordability.  

This workshop is part of Milner Library’s Digital Discussions programming series and is co-sponsored by The Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology and Milner Library. 

If you will need special accommodations, please contact the event organizer.
