What are Wikiversity Reading Groups?[edit | edit source]
Wikiversity Reading Groups are learning projects oriented around generating discussion and notes around specific books, texts, videos, or entire oeuvres that users find of interest.
Starting a Reading Group[edit | edit source]
Please add [[Category:Reading groups]] to any newly created Reading Group. If the book or text has a page on Wikipedia please consider adding the Wikiversity Template to the appropriate Wikipedia page.
Weekly chat session[edit | edit source]
There is a weekly chat session in the weekend on Wikiversity:chat for social bonding and to discuss the future of the reading groups.
