Content summary

This project is concerned with learning resources that allow Wikiversity participants to explore all aspects of scholarly behavior within Wikiversity.



Introduce Wikiversity participants to the idea of being a wiki scholar.

Concepts to learn include: NPOV policy, citation of sources, copyright, copyleft, free culture, and scholarly ethics. This project does not emphasize research but does include an introduction to original research and research ethics. Wikiversity scholars who are interested in original research should also participate in the Research practices learning project.

Learning materials

Learning materials and learning projects are located in the main Wikiversity namespace. Simply make a link to the name of the lesson (lessons are independent pages in the main namespace) and start writing!

You should also read about the Wikiversity:Learning model. Lessons should center on learning activities for Wikiversity participants. Learning materials and learning projects can be used by multiple projects. Cooperate with other departments that use the same learning resource.
