How do you even teach Wikidata?


Global & Local, Depth & Breadth for Newer Editors

Type of session:



More and more people want to know about Wikidata...but how do you teach Wikidata? With so much to cover, how do you ensure everyone is learning what they need to know? What are some ways to keep participants engaged? How do you tie learning outcomes into larger conversations about Wikidata and other projects? This presentation will explore some of the pedagogical approaches Wiki Education's Will Kent has taken to teaching Wikidata. These approaches specifically aim to make Wikidata more accessible, understandable, and usable for new editors.
