Priority is a combination of:

*       what members tell us they'd like to do,
*       what the committee thinks feasible to do
*       what the WMF will fund us to do.

Thanks Kerry and Gnangarra.

 

I think the ideas I put forward are high priority, but I have a tendency to
think that way, so I'll leave it to you guys to work out. Happy to
participate in discussion trying to order the priorities though.

 

Regards,

Leigh

As always we welcome feedback on this list, particularly in terms of
establishing priorities (since we can't do everything).

Thinking further, and I hope you're able to consider suggestions from
non-members..

 

1.      Start the Wikimedia Australia Journal for Education and Research
(WAJER) on Wikiversity. I volunteer to be a peer reviewer. It is a venue for
peer reviewing and publishing works developed in or about the Wikimedia
projects, and related fields. If, over time it achieves impact factor, and
it will by our own metrix, then we will lobby Excellence in Research
Australia to recognise it. When that happens, academics have no reason not
to engage.
2.      Establish a restricted access MediaWiki for culturally vulnerable
and sensitive groups in Australia. I'm thinking primarily Indigenous
Australians, but also refugees and recent migrants, or minority groups that
are at risk of oppression and exploitation. The purpose of the closed wiki
is to offer a secure place to start and trial projects, for as long as they
need to deciding how and when their works can move to the main projects. In
my limited experience working with Indigenous Australians, this would remove
a significant obstacle for their engagement. John Vandenberg was proposing
something like this last year, and I had at least 2 large groups in the NT
wanting such a thing, and now another in Victoria.

And some case study or exemplar for an appropriate and informed relationship
between a university marketing department, and the ethos of the wiki
projects. Ie, remove the barrier that marketing would place on faculty
engagement with the project

I'm not able to edit WMAu wiki,

 

Good to see a continuation of Wikimedia in Higher Education. We could sure
use some more proactive support in our effort to develop educational
practices around the Wikimedia projects. This includes, librarian awareness
campaigns, how to edit workshops, WMAu partnering in funding applications, a
road show of Australian work to date, more active use of Wikiversity as a
hub for this sort of project.

A little while ago there was a call for ideas for our Annual Plan for 2014,
which is an essential part of our FDC funding application (can't ask for
money unless we have things we intend to do!).

 

To try to get this conversation going, I have thrown together a list of
ideas that have come up. Which of these are worth doing? Which not? What's
missing from the list?

Please discuss via email or via editing the page/talk as you prefer.
