New and old collaborations
I (Martin Poulter) attended Wikimania and the Hackathon and spoke on Shani Evenstein's Wikidata and Education panel about the training I have been delivering at Oxford. I also announced the new partnership between Wikimedia UK and the Khalili Collections. Also working on writing a final report and blog posts, and taking some leave.
As with any UK university in August, the Coventry University residency went through a lull period. Nonetheless, the first staff training session was held, with several non-academic staff taught to edit Wikipedia.
The highlight was the hosting of Wikimedia UK's "Wikimedian in Residence Summit", with several WMUK staff and WiRs meeting to share experience and receive updates. The group managed to fit in a guided visit to the University's Lanchester Archives.
