Grants:TPS/Harej/ILTY Training in Seattle/Report
- Saturday's event was the Facilitation Training Workshop, led by me
- On Sunday was the I Love To You Critical Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon
Over the course of the weekend I met with most of the leadership of the Cascadia Wikimedians User Group, where we discussed the user group's plans for organizing the Cascadia region.
I led the facilitator workshop the Friday before the main event on Saturday, featuring five participants. The five participants were drawn from the local user group, plus a librarian from the UW Library and the organizer of the Critical Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon the following day.
At the Critical Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon I met Michael Gilbert, a researcher who is studying online collaboration through WikiProjects. A useful connection for my WikiProject X, another thing I am working on.
- Option 2: Learning Pattern: What is one useful learning pattern you can share with the Wikimedia movement?
- Add a link to a learning pattern - either a new pattern you created with insights from your participation, or an existing pattern to which you added your endorsement and some significant new "considerations" or “examples” from your experience.
- New learning pattern: Grants:Learning patterns/Engaging participants through critical theory
- I augmented a learning pattern I had previously written based on an idea that came up
- Small expansion to an existing learning pattern on mixing newcomers and veterans

The event was covered in the student newspaper: "Feminists aim to fix the Wikipedia gender gap". (As with all things in life, avoid the comments section.)
