During the 2019 PCORI Annual Meeting, the PCORI Dissemination and Implementation team hosted two Wikipedia Edit-a-thons.
This was the first day of the event. The second day was held on Thursday, September 19 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. ET.
Wikipedia shows promise as a way for us to share results from PCORI-funded studies with audiences who can use them. During an Edit-a-thon, experienced Wikipedia users teach others how to edit pages. The sessions are open to all registered attendees at the Annual Meeting and no experience in Wikipedia editing is required.
