Summary edit

We want to show you how we do our Edu Wiki camp. Presentation will show how idea was started, how we did it, and what we got from it. You'll see how we motivated our participants to be active after the camp and what they achieved in these three years. Take journey with us from our first camp in 2016, to our latest, and enjoy discussion with one of the participants.

Expected outcomes edit

Although there are many wiki camps across wiki world, this camp is different because it prepares students to become Wiki ambassadors on their faculties and attendees will have opportunity to learn from our experience, and share their own.
