This is the workshop that supports the Evidence Based Oral Health Practice (ORH3EBP) Group Assignment in the Oral Health program at La Trobe University.

The assignment requires you to:

  1. Create a Wiki account for yourself – choose a user name that is not your real name and ensure this is given to me
  2. Access the nominated Wikipedia page on a regular basis throughout the study period
  3. Decide on the important areas of information that are needed – what information do people need? This could form the basis of ‘sections’ on the page.
  4. Edit the information on the page to ensure it is evidence based – academic references must be provided to support the information you are using. (1000 words required)
  5. Engage in the ‘talk’ linked to the Wikipage.
