Cormac Lawler is User:Cormaggio on many Wikimedia projects, but heavily focused on Wikiversity. He is a PhD student in the University of Manchester (School of Education), and the subject of his research is "developing Wikiversity through action research". Research blog at http://cormaggio.org and wiki at http://www.cormaggio.org/wiki/
This workshop intends to explore key questions around Wikiversity's practice and the wider context into which it fits. It will involve discussion about aspects like learning done in a "wiki way", and how Wikiversity fits into the wider context of Wikimedia projects and the wider OER (Open Educational Resources) movement. It is intended to generate practical suggestions as to how Wikiversity can continue to develop as an educational space and resource.
