Wikidata: Train It Forward[edit]

By Spiritia
Make inquiries to Wikidata and explain to others how to do that: Soon to be made easy :-)

This November, Wikimedia Österreich and Wikimedia Deutschland are conducting for the German-speaking wiki communities Wikidata trainings. What makes these training special is that they are "Train the Trainers" sessions, and this is the first time the concept is tested with German-speaking participants. The training in Vienna will be held in English and there are still some spots left:

  • Date: from Friday 30.11. to Sunday 02.12, in WMAT office in Vienna (with Jens Ohlig, Julia Kirchner and Lea Lacroix)

The workshops include a variety of topics, including:

  • Everything you need to know about Wikidata
  • Wikidata for Wikipedians
  • Talk to the public, share knowledge and moderate groups
  • Documentation and evaluation

To ensure the best possible quality of training, the number of participants is limited to 12 people per session and people have to commit to the entire weekend. Participants are expected to have some experience with Wikidata, but may not need experience in conducting Wikidata workshops.

Reach out to Claudia from WMAT in case you are interested!
