A conference on the 5th and 6th of September is bringing together university teaching and support staff with people from Wikipedia and other online learning communities.
The EduWiki conference will be the first of its kind in the UK, building on the success of university assignments in the US, Canada, Germany and other countries where students improve Wikipedia for course credit. This requires them to read reliable sources, summarise them for Wikipedia's global audience, and respond to feedback from other editors.
Over one and a half days at the University of Leicester's Stamford Hall, there will be speakers from the Wikimedia Foundation, the JISC, and various educational wiki projects, as well as academics from the UK and abroad. As well as the big picture of open education, we will look at the experiences of staff running wiki assignments in their own institutions.
There is a reduced conference rate of 30 pounds for staff at educational institutions. Further information and booking are available at http://bit.ly/eduwiki
