With increasing attention to new and different outlets for disseminating research, geographers are encouraged to enhance their ability to communicate complex geographical ideas to wider audiences, to help increase the amount of geographical content on Wikipedia, and to consider ways in which Wikipedia can be incorporated into research, teaching and learning.
Geographers are invited to attend this wiki workshop, to learn and share the variety of ways Wikipedia can be used in geographical research, teaching and learning, and to receive hands-on training in editing Wikipedia content from the Wikimedia Foundation. No prior experience is needed (but experienced editors welcome to share their knowledge).
Date and time: Monday 7 July 2014, 1pm to 5pm
Location: Royal Geographical Society (with IBG)
Cost: Free, but places are limited
