Hi All

I thought this might be of interest to the list -  the editathon is UK
based but you can join remotely.


*S4BE Wiki Week*

Join Students 4 Best Evidence (S4BE) and help update health evidence on
S4BE are planning an exciting week (15th-19th September) of blogs,
resources and tutorials, culminating in a LIVE Wiki Editathon, online and
at the UK Cochrane Centre on the 16th September.

Cochrane has recently joined forces with Wikipedia in a partnership to get
more Cochrane health evidence on Wikipedia. To celebrate this, S4BE want to
get students involved in this partnership as they know Wikipedia is a key
student resource.

Throughout Wiki Week, S4BE will be publishing blogs on:

 *   Why students are interested in Wikipedia
 *   How to become active on Wikipedia
 *   What is WikiProjectMed
 *   How to edit Wikipedia
 *   Cochrane and Wikipedia partnership
 *   and much more!

Wiki Editathon (launching on 16th September):

 *   In person in Oxford at the UK Cochrane Centre and online using Google
Hangout on the 16th
 *   Wiki training: experienced Wikipedians will be joining us to provide
support for students new to Wiki
 *   Group work: working on a selection of interesting and new Cochrane
reviews that we will help pre-pick
 *   A prize...
 *   and lunch for those coming in person!
