Preparation of Colloquium
We expect a short 5–10-minute presentation on your idea, approach and experience.
- Assessment criteria:
- content and writing style (use your own words, no copy & paste from other web pages)
- do you give credit in the right way (captions, quotations, footnotes)?
- do you make use of imagery or other media files (if applicable)?
- do you upload own material to Wikimedia Commons?
- do you reference geocoordinates (for places or historic events)?
- how did you handle the upload to Wikipedia and what happened afterwards?
- overall creativity!
Btw, should you still lack a good idea for an article, this one needs some work: Цифровые гуманитарные науки
- biases in Wikipedia
- the tree of Diderot and d'Alembert and the Wikipedia article graph (example around the 'writer' category)
