Hands-on Wikidata workshop

To prepare people for leadership, higher education needs to get students not just answering questions, but asking them (David White 2013). Wikidata is a lot more interesting and accessible than your average database, and so it is an ideal platform to introduce people to the topics of knowledge representation and querying data. This session gives some hands-on experience asking questions of Wikidata.
