Recent Changes Camp, University of Canberra.. recently

Last month, we hosted a Recent Changes Camp at the University of Canberra (UC RCC). The Media Production Society helped out by making this great video of the day.

The original idea was to host a WikiMinia in Canberra, on the back of Wikimania in July... but then Laura Hale joined UCNISS as a researcher, and told me about the Recent Changes Camp tradition. When we decided to run with that, Laura was a gun in getting the UC RCC website up and running, and helping announce it through the networks.

Instead of 3 days, we held UC RCC for one day. 30 people attended the unconference, and came from as far as Hobart (Skills Tasmania and Tasmanian Polytechnics) and Sydney (Cancer Council and Wiki Media Foundation). The discussion agenda set by the participants included:

  • Wikiversity
  • Wiki community and usability
  • Wikis for applied learning
  • Conversations behind wikis
  • Wikis for Community Consultation

I think its safe to say it was quite a successful day. Feedback has been really positive, and plans are afoot to host another UC RCC early next year, this time for the full 3 days. Please get in touch if you'd like to be a part of that.

Cool - very cool-. Thank you for doing a video. It will help other people to take in use your good practices.
