Description

Invited to represent UoE at the Wikimedia Education Summit at Middlesex University, London (Feb 20, 2017), a nation-wide event. My presentation on the ‘Wiki translation project’ focused on Wikipedeia in the classroom and on best practice. Since UoE Msc in Translation is the first UK masters programme to incorporate the translation of Wikipedia articles into the coursework, it was considered as an innovative teaching tool.
