Top 5 reasons to use a wiki at SLAIS:

1 – Our profession is all about collaboration; wikis are a key tool for online collaboration.
This introductory session will cover the basics of creating a new wiki site (including assigning permissions, updating, and organizing content), as well as looking at different ways to use wikis throughout our studies at SLAIS. We’ll review both PBwiki and Wikidot, and participants will get a chance to create an account and set up a site.

Workshop will be conducted by 2nd year SLAIS student Maureen Bezanson. All SLAIS students are welcome to attend to learn the basics or share their own wiki knowledge. Please RSVP to asist.ubc@gmail.com if planning to attend. Thanks!
