Apologies for cross-posting, particularly to those who may have already
read on other mailing list. I think you may find the announcement below
interesting and worth your notice.
Last April 5th the Education team at the Wikimedia Foundation announced the
launch of the Wikimedia & Education Greenhouse
<https://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/Education/Greenhouse>. The W&E
Greenhouse is a fully immersive co-learning experience that lasts 9 months
and is designed for emerging leaders in our movement who believe in the
value of Wikimedia projects in education. It will equip participants with
the skills, knowledge, and support to bring their ideas to life and scale
them into high-impact education initiatives in their community.
The W&E Greenhouse has two modalities of participation: you can apply as a
team or as an individual. Applying as a team means that you present an idea
for an education project you want to develop in your local community. One
team will be selected to receive seed funding for their project, on-site
mentoring and support from WMF staff, and access to a free project
management online course. Applying as an individual means completing a
short form expressing your interest and motivation, and this will give you
access to the free online course. So far we have received applications from
all over the world and we are very excited to keep reading about the
amazing education projects you want to develop. You can apply as a team
or as an individual
We have prepared some resources to support your applications:
- Overview of the W&E Greenhouse
- What topics will be covered in the online course?
- What is the timeline of the online course?
- How do I start with a team application?
- What is the team application like? (video guide)
