HGAPS partners with a growing number of professional societies to build Wikiversity pages augmenting the meetings.

A small team can work with the conference organizers, and build a landing page that includes featured events and details from the program. If presenters share slides, videos, or handouts, we link these to the page.

We often take notes during meetings, discussion panels, and question & answer sessions, and then organize and move these over to the Wiki page as well.

All of these activities take advantage of open source tools to make it easier to find and share content from the meetings. Because Wikiversity is open, it eliminates a cost barrier: Everything here is free to share with others.

Conferences[edit | edit source]

  • ABCT: We have several events included in the 2020 Convention Program for the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT), as well as pages working with the Bipolar Disorders Special Interest Group (SIG).
  • NCPA: We are partnering with the North Carolina Psychological Association to develop pages with notes and resources related to conference programming.
  • SCCAP programming at the APA National Convention
  • JCCAP Future Directions Forum: We have built Wikiversity pages for every meeting of the Future Directions Forum -- the first meeting was where the mash-up was born!
  • MICAMH- We partnered with Miami International Children and Adolescent Mental Health Conference to develop pages with notes and resources to the workshops and keynote speakers at the 3-day conference.
