Purpose of this page Using this page

This page is for discussion of items that relate to student assignments and the Wikipedia Education Program. Please feel free to post, whether you're from a class, a potential class, or if you're a Wikipedia editor.

Topics for this board might include:

Of course, we should remain civil towards all participants and assume good faith.

There are other pages more appropriate for dealing with certain specific issues:

  • Click "Click here to start a new discussion thread" below to start a new thread.
  • Please start new threads under a level-2 heading, using double equals-signs and an informative title: ==Informative title==. If a thread is related to an ongoing discussion, consider placing it under a level-3 heading within that discussion.
  • You should generally notify any user who is the subject of a discussion. You may use {{ping}} to do so, or simply link their username when you post your comment.
    It is not required to contact students when their edits are only being discussed in the context of a class-wide problem.
  • If no comments have been made within 30 days, your post and any responses will be automatically archived.
  • Please sign all contributions, using four tilde characters "~~~~".
  • If discussion is already ongoing elsewhere or if there is a more natural location for a discussion, please continue the discussion there, and put a short note with a link to the relevant location on this page.
  • If you cannot edit this page because it is protected, please place your comments on this page and they will be addressed.

Managing threads

By default, threads will be automatically archived by a bot after 30 days of inactivity. If you'd like to make sure a thread does not get archived, use {{Do not archive until}} at the top of the section. Use {{User:ClueBot III/ArchiveNow}} within a section to have it archived (more or less) immediately. A brief Archives page lists them with the years in which those now inactive discussions took place.

The ambassador program is no longer active, and you do not have the editing experience that would be required if it were. I expect that this request will be closed and removed very soon. --Tryptofish (talk) 22:35, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

Is there a related class?

An IP editor on breast imaging will be completing an assignment. Just wondering if there is associated school or institute? [Special:Diff/779212066/948888185] Cheers --Tom (LT) (talk) 22:10, 3 April 2020 (UTC)

@Tom (LT): I believe it's User: Amircha in this class. I'm going to move the In the interest of privacy, since they revealed their real name and IP address, I should probably revdel the edit and copy the content to their sandbox. Ian (Wiki Ed) (talk) 17:10, 6 April 2020 (UTC)
Sure. Thanks for your help. --Tom (LT) (talk) 07:52, 7 April 2020 (UTC)

Original research in BLP

Hi,

A new editor just added content attributed to "personal communication" in Jerilynn Prior. Dr. Prior is a friend of mine IRL so I don't want to intervene directly. She has cc'd me on recent email exchanges with someone who said they are updating her Wikipedia bio as part of a class assignment, although I don't think this has been declared on-wiki. Everything is being done in good faith but the student needs to be informed about our sourcing policies. Would someone here like to follow up? Clayoquot (talk | contribs) 21:26, 13 April 2020 (UTC)

@Clayoquot: do you know which university the student is at? If they're in the U.S. or Canada, you can tell them to have their instructor visit teach.wikiedu.org. Then we can get the course registered, so all students will have access to training materials covering (for example) sourcing and WP:NOR. --LiAnna (Wiki Ed) (talk) 21:38, 13 April 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. I've passed that suggestion along to the student along with a heads-up about WP:NOR and WP:BLP. The class is at the University of Guelph. Clayoquot (talk | contribs) 00:41, 14 April 2020 (UTC)
