Ideas (unsorted)

  1. Edit-a-thon for beginning- to intermediate-level Wikipedians, loosely following the Introductory edit-a-thons model. The goal would be to offer a group of students from Wellesley College (and anyone else who wishes to join) an opportunity to deepen their understanding of how to edit Wikipedia effectively. I would hope for a minimum of 3 hours, which would include a brief introduction and Q&A session, followed by group editing on a specific topic (most likely, U.S. newspapers), with opportunities for sharing back to the group. I'd be happy to work with other in planning and/or executing the session -- please contact me by email if you'd like to collaborate. -Pete Forsyth (talk) 22:27, 30 September 2019 (UTC)
