Participants will learn about Wikipedia and edit Wikipedia pages. There will be an introductory talk before hands-on activities. Hands-on activities include editing a health-related article on Wikipedia and using Grey Literature Report resources as source material. Please bring your own computer/device if you are able. Limited laptops will be made available by the Academy.
Come prepared to think critically, gain knowledge on a health topic, cite one source, and learn something new.
