Abstract (up to 100 words)

I’d like to present lightweight approaches to cross the magic frontier of the first edit, supported by observations from several workshops I participated this year in Poland. Readers that feel empowered to fix an error when they spot it improve the quality of our wikis and extend our communities' capacity. And at some point may dare to create their own first, short but mature article. The presentation will also cover lessons learned.

How will this session be beneficial for the communities in the region of Central and Eastern Europe?

Language diversity in our region and limited number of native speakers makes attracting even occasional editors very important for the sustainability of the projects. Task-based, hands-on workshops may be an alternative to organisation of fully-fledged workshops/trainings and promote organic growth of editors' communities.

Special requirements

beamer, pointer
