DRC Wiki Edit-a-Thon

Tweet about this on TwitterShare on Facebook12

Wiki editing events, called edit-a-thons, are organized, scheduled opportunities designed to broaden access to and representation in a wiki site. A number of edit-a-thons have been held for the most famous of wiki sites, Wikipedia, which offers a how-to guide for edit-a-thons.

The DRC is organizing an edit-a-thon for the DRC Wiki at Computers and Writing 2015! We’ll be sitting at a Sweetland Digital Rhetoric Collaborative table throughout the conference and presenting in session E2.

If you want hands-on experience editing a wiki or an opportunity to examine classroom wiki activities, consider taking part in the DRC Wiki’s edit-a-thon during the Computers and Writing 2015 conference.
