Ktip.pngThis is a page for working on some ideas for improving EL4C Workshop

Collaborative Activity


  • The basic idea is promoting participation & engagement to collaborative activities by working on a (temporal) community of practice (EL4C##COP) arround a collaborative task, which is:
    • Helping ficticious peer Einstein to develop his Users Page.

Outputs: By the end of this activity, participants:

  • Have improved their wiki-skills
  • Are initiated to the concept of "Community of practice"
  • Know a bit more one to each other which results on strengthed personal relationships among WikiEducators.
  • Learned about wiki ethics.
  • Worked on their first collaborative project.

Duration of EL4C##COP Coffee Lounge: Workshop. Starting activities since first day.

Output for this activity (Einstein' Page) could be published in:

  • Nellie's second online session (WiZiQ)
  • As a featured User Page somewhere. Perhaps Main Page.
  • We might publish in main page some kind of News regarding to the current workshop.

Previous Tasks

Creation of a temporal (perhaps) EL4C Community of Practice and Collaborative Activity:


1. Creation of page EL4C##COP (## stands for the specific workshop number)

  • Page's name: EL4C##COP
  • Title for the page: EL4C## Community of Practice or EL4C##COP Coffe Lounge (think on a cool & attractive name)
  • A link for this page should be included in the EL4C## Navigation Template
  • Writing the Participant List
  • Name (Facilitator) -
  • Name (Cofacilitator/Junior facilitator) -
  • Fulano (Participant) -
  • Zutano (Participant) -
  • Mengano(Participant) -
  • Perengano(Participant) -

2. Design of (standard) Einstein's User Page contents

Content should include:

  • Infobox personal
  • Picture
  • About me
  • My job
  • My project in WE
  • My professional interests
  • My personal interests
  • My wikifriends notes

Note: Einstein's main page would keep intact. The community would work on a specific subpage. One per workshop. (e.g. User:Einstein/EL4C21 ).

Some of this info should be preloaded. Rest is up to participants creativity.

Content of EL4C##COP Page

1. EL4C Navigation Template

2. Page's Logo and Wellcome message

Something like "Welcome to Cofee Break Lounge of EL4C Community of Practice"


  • Logo and Banner

3. Brief explanation of Communities of Practice

Community of Practice is...

4. Description of the collaborative Activity

Creating a story, something like:

Our novice physics teacher Einstein is begging for some help for developing his User Page ...

5. Participant's List

Instructions for adding link to User Name at corresponding Participant name. Perhaps a nice framed image hanging in a wall containing the following text:

Newcomer? Please find yourself in the list and add a link to your User Page.

Problems adding your link?

  • Click on Edit tab.
  • Find your name. (e.g. A. Einstein (Junior Facilitator) - )
  • Add a link for your User Page ( e.g. [[User:Einstein]] ).
  • Scroll down to click on Save Page tab.
  • That's it.

For more info about adding links to user page please see Internal Links

Seek for yourself in the list. Is your user name displayed by your Name?

  • Yes? Great !!
  • No? Please re-read instructions, try again. Ask for help to a peer you see already linked. Your facilitator (facilitators link) is also ready to give you a hand.

Example of Participants List (pre-ellaborated by facilitator/cofacilitator/junior facilitator)

  • R.F./P.S./N.M./... (Facilitator) -
  • A. Einstein (Junior Facilitator) - User:Einstein
  • Fulano (Participant) -
  • Zutano (Participant) -
  • Mengano(Participant) -
  • Perengano(Participant) -
