AHA Partners with Wiki Education for New Member Benefit

The AHA is pleased to announce our partnership with Wiki Education, a nonprofit organization that strives to engage students and academics in improving Wikipedia, enriching student learning, and building a more informed public. AHA members now receive special access to Wiki Education’s free online Wikipedia and Wikidata training courses, which are designed to teach subject matter experts how to edit Wikipedia articles. To sign up for a course, sign in to your MyAHA account, scroll down to “Discounts and Other Benefits” at the bottom of the page, and follow the steps posted under “Wiki Education.” AHA members will also have access to an exclusive online training course just for AHA members—details to come this summer.

As part of this partnership, we’re also spotlighting Wiki Education’s Wikipedia Student Program, in which college instructors assign students Wikipedia writing projects. You can learn more about the program on Wiki Education’s website.
