Back in early August we shared some of the awesome achievements of our GO-GN WikiScholars, including some fantastic blog posts from participants. We’re thrilled to see further sharing of reflections and experiences on the course since. So without further ado, here’s all the posts, in one handy place!
WikiEducation have interviewed some of our fabulous GO-GN’ers:
- Michael Dabrowski discusses his journey from user to contributor and the potential of academic contribution to Wikipedia in Seeing yourself as a Wikipedian...
- Whilst long-time Wikipedian Irwin DeVries reflects on inclusivity and student co-creation in A Peek Backstage at Wikipedia…
- The Open Education Group’s Virginia Clinton-Lisell discusses developing content for the open textbook and OER articles in Improving Wikipedia’s coverage of OER

- Helen de Waard reflects on Wikipedia editing, collaboration and “getting it wrong to get it right” in Wiki Wondering
- Gabi Witthaus blogs on her collaboration with Helen to create a new Wikipedia article in What is an open thesis? Ask Wikipedia!
