HGAPS Launching Edit-a-thon 2017, University of North Carolina
Participants from around North Carolina (and anywhere!) are invited to gather together at the Davis Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to edit and create Wikipedia entries on assessment in psychology.
Venue: Research Hub presentation space (on the 2nd floor of Davis) @ the University of North Carolina.
Twitter hashtag: #WikiPsychAssessment
Participants: The event is open to anyone who wishes to learn and preserve information about assessment in psychology! No Wiki editing experience necessary; as needed, tutorials will be provided for Wikipedia newcomers. Female editors are particularly encouraged to attend. Can’t be there the whole time? No problem. Join us for as little or as long as you like. The first hour will be focused on introducing newbies to Wikipedia tenets and markup language.
Details: Attendees will bring their own laptops and power cords. Pizza, snacks, and soft drinks will be provided.
Registration:To register, please sign in via either of these channels: a) Add your name to the guest list below; or b) send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For new articles, participants are encouraged to use the assessment template to help structure their new Wikipedia page. For participants working in teams, Google Doc links will be provided to help facilitate workflow.
The following is a sampling of suggested articles to create or add upon. However, feel free to come up with your own ideas! Helpful updates could be as simple as: Making sure reference links are still appropriate and functional; Adding new inline citations/references; Adding a photo; Adding an infobox; Adding data to more fields in an existing infobox; Creating headings; Adding categories; etc. Advanced edits that could be made include, but are not limited to: adding limitations (if it is a measure), impact (if it is a measure), current projects (if a psychological association), history of topic.
