Wikipedia Academy Kosovo is an upcoming event in Kosovo and we are
seeking some Wikipedians from Europe to fly-in to mentor and speak.
The event will encourage the creation of high-quality content - both
photos and articles - on Wikipedia English by students and others in
Kosovo. The Academy will be a 3-day event organized in Prishtina,
Kosovo on 22-24 February. About 100 participants will be recruited
from high schools and universities around Kosovo. They will be
encouraged to form teams from their schools with a faculty mentor to
sponsor them. To help prepare for the Academy, the organizers will
conduct presentations introducing students to the wiki editing
process, research and appropriate content creation.
Participants will hear from local, regional and international speakers
to improve their understanding and purpose of Wikipedia and the
process of creating high quality articles. On day two, the
participants will organize into teams to generate new content that
will be edited and posted during the event. On day three participants
will post their content to Wikipedia and Wikivoyage. Best articles and
photos will be awarded prizes.
If anyone is interested, please email me to arianit(a)gmail.com
<mailto:email@example.com> with your Wikipedia user ID, one or more
topics you could speak on, a few short paragraphs stating your
motivation and qualification for this event.
We will cover your travel to and expenses while in Prishtina.
I look forward to hearing from you,
