Become a GO-GN Wiki Scholar!

We’re absolutely thrilled to be joining forces with Wiki Education to offer GO-GN’ers training in Wikipedia editing and the chance to collaboratively improve the depth and coverage of open education topics on Wikipedia:

“The community who builds and maintains Wikipedia is more than 20 years into this project, and yet the OER content itself is still incomplete, outdated, or missing entirely. To amplify research about open educational resources to the public, Wiki Education and the Global OER Graduate Network (GO-GN) are partnering to close this content gap. In a 6-week training course, Wiki Education will guide GO-GN members through the process of improving Wikipedia pages related to OER. Participants will collaborate to update pages about open educational resources, open educational practices, the OER ecosystem in specific regions, research related to OER and social justice, or any notable topic related to participants’ expertise and interest.”

Get started on your Wikipedia editing journey! Join us to develop essential Wikipedia editing skills.

  • Use your knowledge and understanding of open education to help improve and diversify topics currently covered.
  • Ensure articles reference the latest in open education research.
  • Feel confident to continue editing Wikipedia.
  • No prior knowledge or experience required.

Find out more about what’s involved, hear from previous participants and apply for the training.

Questions? We are delighted that for our 20 April pre-OER 21 seminar, Jami Mathewson from Wiki Education will join us for a taster session and to answer your questions. Join us!
