Information literacy, data literacy and digital research skills are essential skills for our students, in their studies and their future careers. Ewan McAndrew is the Wikimedian in Residence at the University of Edinburgh. His role is to help academics and students understand how to better use, evaluate and benefit from the information on Wikipedia, and how to contribute scholarly knowledge openly to Wikipedia in honouring the university’s commitment to the dissemination of open knowledge.

In this webinar, Ewan will describe his work in University of Edinburgh, and some of the ways that Wikipedia and its sister projects are used there to help students develop information literacy, data literacy and digital research skills.

Email if you would like to attend.
