The layman Social Learning community needs you!
Ever wondered what info students who are newly approaching social learning will find? How Social Learning is portrayed to the public? How correct the knowledge that is most easily reachable by the average web user is?
At our recent workshop, the Society decided to get more involved in public outreach. To begin with, we have started improving social learning-related webpages on Wikipedia!
To continue with this effort, we are currently organising a Social Learning Wikipedia Task Force, a group of researchers and affiliated who takes care of ‘cleaning up’, improving the quality of information available and expanding the number of Wikipedia pages dedicated to Social Learning and related topics. At least at the start, this is going to be a team working together online, at an individual’s pace. If you are looking for an opportunity to get involved in public engagement and improve your science communication skills, here it is.
