Please consider applying for this program and/or sharing with those who??d have an interest:
The American Chemical Society and Wiki Education are pleased to announce a new opportunity for ACS members to join the Wikipedia Fellows Program, an interdisciplinary project led by Wiki Education to train academic scholars to contribute content expertise to Wikipedia. We believe scholars who bring their understanding of complex chemistry issues to Wikipedia can share important scientific knowledge with the world, empowering the public to participate fully as citizens.
Wiki Education is launching several Wikipedia Fellows cohorts this summer and welcomes ACS members to apply. ACS Wikipedia Fellows will join members from other academic associations for weekly virtual meetings over the next few months. Participants will learn to contribute to Wikipedia, receiving guidance and support along the way.
ε• No experience with Wikipedia is required.
ε• Participants are asked to commit 3 hours/week, including training and group meetings.
ε• Wiki Education will provide training, guidance, and support throughout the process, using video conferences and instant messaging software??both free.
ε• Participants will make significant contributions to at least two Wikipedia articles by the end of the program.
ε• Fellows will fill out short surveys in the beginning and end of the program, and Wiki Education asks them to write a reflective blog post (on wikiedu.org) about their experience.
For more information, visit fellows.wikiedu.org or email wikipediafellows**At_Symbol_Here**wikiedu.org. If you're interested in participating, please fill out the Wikipedia Fellows application here by Tuesday, June 26, 2018.
