We hosted another Recent Changes Camp at the University of Canberra on 28 January, this time for the full 3 days.
Wikimedia Australia sponsored Mark Dilley's flights in to facilitate the session and report our RCC back to the US. They also sponsored the flights of several others, to the worth of $5000. UCNISS catered the 3 days, and AboutUS covered Mark's work load while he was away.
22 people attended, and we covered quite a range of topics:
- Discussion About Open Space.
- Wikis for education
- Printing books out of wikis
- All about Appropedia
- When will wikis supersede traditional Word Processing?
- Wikis for fun
- What key facilitation capacities help create successful wikis?
- Let's reverse-brainstorm: Why wikis don't work
- The future of the Vocational Education and Training sector
- Open Educational Resources
- All about Wikitravel
- Wikiversity for postgraduate education
- Wikimedia Australia session
- The Bruce Declaration
- Going forward: Future wiki conferences
The thing that struck me this time, is what a difference 3 days makes as apposed to 1, and when the participants all have experience (as diverse as that was) with wikis and collaborating online.
RCC2011 is being archived here, where you'll find photos, videos, and notes for the sessions.
