Education program of Wikimedia Serbia at Faculty of Biology



Summary: Within the Center for Scientific and research work at the Faculty of Biology, University of Belgrade, a workshop on editing Wikipedia was organized for the first time.


Within the Center for Scientific and research work at the Faculty of Biology, University of Belgrade, a workshop on editing Wikipedia was organized for the first time. The workshop was attended by 21 students, and the whole workshop was held by Teodora Lukić, one of the participants of the EduWiki Camp in 2017 and current Wiki ambassador at the Faculty of Biology. "I like that this type of workshop opens the door to further cooperation and helps us to acquire knowledge applicable in other spheres of study and life in general. This gave us the opportunity to participate in an excellent project with a goal of creating something that might be useful to someone else, " said one of the participants in the workshop. Workshops of this type are held at several other faculties. They are held out of any faculty course, and those who successfully fulfill their obligations receive ECTS credits. This is one of the steps that leads Wikipedia to be part of the academic infrastructure.
