Join us! "Wikipedia Barn Raising" Event July 19

Dear colleagues,

Please join us for a free “Wikipedia Barn Raising” event on Saturday July 19th, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Pacific Time, at the Oakland Impact Hub, 2323 Broadway, Oakland, California – or online. Lunch and refreshments will be provided for those joining us in person.

Since 2012, we’ve been working – with substantial help from many of you – to strengthen Wikipedia’s coverage of Open Educational Resources (OER) and related topics. We’ve worked to build a community around this goal: at conferences in the field, through our online “Writing Wikipedia Articles” (WIKISOO) course with School of Open, and through the formation of WikiProject Open.

At the Barn Raising, we will focus on improving high-priority Wikipedia articles about OER, and consider ways to strengthen WikiProject Open as a resource for staying connected as the funded period of Communicate OER comes to a close.

We welcome online participants from around the world, with collaboration tools and scheduled video check-ins.
