I want to inform you about a new project “Train-a-Wikipedian” (TAW),
powered by CIS-A2K.
You may know of the English Wikipedia program Adopt-a-user
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Adopt-a-user>. We wanted to start
something similar for the Indian Wikimedia communities.
In February and June this year, CIS-A2K conducted Train the Trainer
<http://CIS-A2K/Events/Train the Trainer Program> (TTT) and MediaWiki Train
(MWTTT). After conducting these two events, and communicating with the
participants we found the necessity to start a training program that we’ll
be running on regular basis, and from there we conceived this
Initially, we’ll concentrating on these 5 Indian languages Wikis: 1)
Kannada, 2) Konkani, 3) Marathi, 4) Odia, 5) Telugu. But, we may expand
soon, if our program is a success.
In our TAW main page
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/CIS-A2K/Train-a-Wikipedian>, we have
listed a number of topics those we’ll discussing during our training. We
hope to conduct hangout or webinar sessions.
Please provide your feedback and suggestion. :-)
