Engagement with Wikimedia
La Trobe University has no formal arrangement of policy regarding engagement with Wikimedia projects.
Over 2012 and 13, a small number of subjects and courses in the Faculty of Health Sciences started a pilot of open education practices using Wikiversity. Their work can be viewed on the category page: La Trobe Health Sciences. A report on this pilot is anticipated later in 2013.
In February 2013, the Bendigo campus of La Trobe University hosted an all day Wikipedia editing workshop, in response to a request from the Bendigo Community Health Service.
In March 2013, a small group of La Trobe University staff convened an all day open conference on the questions of open education, to coincide with the international open education week. They used Wikiversity and Commons to organise, promote and document the event.
