Proposed participation


I am currently the program leader for [Ghana UG's Wikipedia Education Program] at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration Law School.

It will introduce a class of about 60 students to Wikipedia to enable them settle in to the Wikipedia Education Program scheduled for them.

The WEP program is not targeting editor retention however the students will be given the opportunity to join the [Ghana User Group].

I believe that this will go a long way to grow our community, as well as help scholars better understand Wikipedia and how it belongs in education. SitsofeOfori (talk) 15:19, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

  • For the WEP to start at GIMPA this training is the students' introduction to the English Wikipedia before their educator can even talk of giving them Wikipedia assignments. The participation has been on short notice because the educator requested this program on short notice. We hope that won't deter the funding. I endorse.

  • I endorse this for the WEP to start as soon as possible. Mawulicherubim (talk) 22:22, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
