Lesson plans and tutorials for in-person training[edit]

Art+Feminism Beginner and Advanced Training Slides[edit]

We have developed a set of 7 slide presentations on editing in Wikipedia. Five of them correspond to the basic level and 2 of them to the advanced level. You can use them to train yourself in Wikipedia editing, as well as to provide training sessions to your event attendees. There are some sections for collaborative work built-in. If you're running a large group session, you may want to modify these slides to cut these sections out. You'll also find some helpful content in the Notes sections.

This set of slides is also available in Spanish and Portuguese. Previous Art+Feminism slide presentations are available in Italian and Chinese.

Art+Feminism Training Lesson Plan[edit]

Organizers may use the Art+Feminism Training Lesson Plan to help lead or structure Beginner Wikipedia training sessions.

The Advanced Training includes "Adding Images," "Adding Infoboxes," "Notability Guidelines for Artists," "New Page Creation," "What do I do if my article is flagged for deletion?" and "Articles for Deletion."

This template will also search for free, appropriately-licensed images. It looks like this:

Journal access[edit]

  • You can use Worldcat free to get citations in MLA, Chicago, and other bibliographic formats.
  • The Wikipedia Library Journals Project works to grant Wikipedians access to databases to help with their Wikipedia work, and reference work, and for general knowledge. You can request an account on the project pages but must do so in advance. Some journals, such as JSTOR, require editors to have at least 1 year and 1000 edits worth of experience.
