Proposed participation[edit]

I am a member of Wikipedia Education Collaborative. In 2015, I worked on the Wikipedia Education Program related to literature and linguistics, especially for university students. I believe that Wikipedia would be an ideal teaching tool for tertiary education. I am invited to the 3rd International Conference on Education 2017, which will be held on 20th, 21st and 22nd April 2017 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I will give a presentation about Wikipedia being used as teaching tools for tertiary education, which is about the Wikipedia Education Program, and its feasibility and effectiveness for open education.

Goal and expected impact[edit]

As a result of my talk, everyone in the audience will become aware of the possibility of using Wikipedia as the teaching tool in university. Since there will be many scholars attending the conference, I hope that the presentation will encourage them to use Wikipedia for their teaching.

Budget breakdown[edit]

  • Travel (round trip airfare from Berlin, Germany to Kuala Lumper, Malaysia): USD 500
  • Accommodation: USD 50 per night x 4 nights = USD 200
  • Per Diem: USD 55 x 4 = USD 220 (Including transportation and meals)
  • Registration Fee: USD 510
  • Total: USD 1430

Other instructions[edit]

It would be nice if the Foundation can arrange the flights and accommodation for me! For the registration fee and per diem, I need advance disbursement, or the Foundation can pay the registration fee to the organizer directly. At the same time, I need the Foundation to arrange the travel insurance for me.


  • I think Venus would be a great presenter of showing Wikipedia. She helped Wikimedia Hong Kong for the outreach few years ago, and she also went to Taiwan to present Wiki-GLAM related program. --Liang(WMTW) (talk) 17:39, 16 February 2017 (UTC)
