Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)

Wikimedia is a movement passionate about documentation. How can we best use this documentation to learn from each other? Is my knowledge worth sharing? Everyone running an activity or event learns something new that they can transfer to others. In this presentation, we will share ways of documenting knowledge that are advancing the movement in terms of programs and other outreach efforts. How you can find what you are looking for before you create it... again!

In this session, we will share existing ways of sharing knowledge. We will also introduce the Wikimedia Resource Center, a space for shared learning, where Wikimedians can find resources, and share the documentation they create for others to learn from their experience. We will share the research that has shaped the WRC so far, and collect any new feedback that could inform its design.

If you create documentation, guides, and other tools, and want to know how to best share them to the Wikimedia movement, come share your experience with us. If you are frequently looking for a document to help you start a new project, or grow an existing one, this is a session for you! If you coordinate projects and programmatic activities, what you learn matters. We want to find the best way to connect people to knowledge and help, in this way, to advance our mission.


What will attendees take away from this session?

Attendees will leave with a clear idea of how and where they can share their knowledge, and why it matters.
