NDEC WERT: a useful model to design or initiate extracurricular wikimedia organizations[edit]

Abstract/description of your session[edit]

  • NDEC Wikipedia Editorial and Research Team is a specialized wikimedia team of Notre Dame English Club, an extra curricular organization of Notre dame College, Dhaka, Bangladesh. For the last two years, we are working continuously to find the factors that may sustain this type of extra curricular wikimedia initiatives in educational institutions and this may be extremely helpful for similar initiative around the world, specially in the Indian sub-continent as the socio-economic context here are much similar. The presentation will focus on the main considerations while working with this kind of initiatives and some techniques to make them sustainable.

How does it connect with the WCI 2023 theme/focus[edit]

  • This “non-affiliate organized wikimedia student group” can help the wikimedians of the subcontinent connect with their existing idea of wikimedia in education and help all the involved parties utilize the learnings. Besides it will also help the participants to learn more about an amazing and surprisingly quiet “mini-revolution” happening in their neighboring country and thus will connect everyone centering their spirits to use wikimedia in education.
