Honouring Indigenous Writers: Learning to Edit Wikipedia

Wikipedia is a multilingual, 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 there remains lots of work to be done but in order to change the space we need to know how to edit.

Join us for this hands-on session on how to edit Wikipedia. This session will cover: Creating and Account; Norms and conventions for editing; and Creating and editing an article, adding categories, and citations.
