== Project Goal == Promoting Community Engagement on Misinformation and Disinformation on Wikipedia

What will be the outputs of your project and how will those outputs contribute to advancing a specific Movement Strategy Initiative

What specific Movement Strategy Initiative does your project focus on and why? Please select one of the initiatives described here

Our project "Promoting Community Engagement on Misinformation and Disinformation on Wikipedia" aims to promote community engagement and discussion on understanding the effects of misinformation and disinformation as well as ways to mitigate both. Our project focuses on fostering community engagement and discussions to deepen the understanding of the effects of misinformation and disinformation on Wikipedia. We aim to identify effective strategies to mitigate the impact of both phenomena on the platform. By involving the Wikipedia community in this process, we seek to enhance the overall quality and reliability of information available on the site.

Misinformation and disinformation pose significant challenges to Wikipedia's mission of providing reliable and accurate information to its users. They can distort content, mislead readers, and undermine the credibility of the platform. To tackle these issues effectively, we believe that a collective effort from the Wikipedia community is essential. This project intends to bring together editors, administrators, and other stakeholders to engage in fruitful discussions and share insights on how to address these challenges.

Project Activities edit

What specific activities will be carried out during this project? Please describe the specific activities that will be carried out during this project.

Community Surveys: We will conduct surveys to understand the perceptions and experiences of Wikipedia contributors regarding misinformation and disinformation. This data will help identify common challenges and areas of concern.

Expert Webinars: Organize webinars with subject matter experts and scholars in the fields of information integrity and digital media to share their insights on the impact of misinformation and disinformation on Wikipedia. These sessions will provide valuable perspectives and stimulate critical thinking among the community.

How do you intend to keep communities updated on the progress and outcomes of the project? Please add the names or usernames of these individuals responsible for updating the community

1. Regular Updates on Wikimedia Platforms: We will post frequent updates on relevant Wikimedia platforms, such as Meta-Wiki, community noticeboards, and project talk pages. These updates will include detailed progress reports, key milestones achieved, and any challenges encountered. 2. Online Meetings and Webinars: Organizing periodic online meetings and webinars will enable us to directly engage with community members, share project updates, and address questions or concerns they may have. These interactive sessions will foster a sense of ownership and involvement in the project. 3. Social Media and Blog Posts: We will leverage social media platforms and create blog posts to share project updates and achievements. This approach will reach a wider audience beyond the Wikimedia community, promoting awareness and collaboration.

Outcomes edit

After your activities are complete, we would like to understand the draft implementation plan for your community. You will be required to prepare a document detailing this plan around a movement strategy initiative. This report can be prepared through Meta-wiki using the Share your results button on this page. The report can be prepared in your language, and is not required to be written in English.

In this report, you will be asked to:

  • Provide a link to the draft implementation plan document or Wikimedia page
  • Describe what activities supported the development of the plan
  • Describe how and where you have communicated your plan to relevant communities.
  • Report on how your funding was spent

Your draft implementation plan document should address the following questions clearly:

  • What movement strategy initiative or goal are you addressing?
  • What activities will you be doing to address that initiative?
  • What do you expect will happen as a result of your activities? How do those outcomes address the movement strategy initiative?
  • How will you measure or evaluate your activities? What tools or methods will you use to evaluate your activities?

To create a draft implementation plan, we recommend the use of a logic model, which will help you and your team think about goals, activities, outcomes, and other factors in an organized way. Please refer the following resources to develop a logic model:
