Workshop with the students of Faculty of Philology, University of Prishtina, Hasan Prishtina
Summary: In May 2021, Wikimedians of Albanian Language User Group (WoALUG) organized an online training on writing and translating Wikipedia articles with students of the University of Prishtina, Hasan Prishtina.
WoALUG organized an online training on writing and translating Wikipedia articles with students of the Faculty of Philology, University of Prishtina, Hasan Prishtina in May 2021. The students who are studying Italian language, English language, and Latin language, were part of the training.
We also held an online Q&A session on the 4th of June where participants could talk about technical problems they're addressing and discuss further the topics they want to cover. The students were given the opportunity by their professor to write/ translate an article from the language they are studying in Albanian (Shqip) on Wikipedia Shqip instead of having to take the paper-based final exam. The students were very open and enthusiastic about this proposal. We also have created a Facebook group with all the students where they can further discuss and address any other questions they might have.
The students have already started to work on the articles even though they have 4 weeks to complete and upload the article. The deadline, given by the professor, has been set considering that they can wish to take this innovative final exam instead of the usual exam they have.
- We have a public Telegram channel (language used mostly Albanian); if you want to join and discuss Wikimedia project-related stuff. You don't need to be a member to be part of this channel.
