On behalf of the Wikipedia & Education User Group, I am happy to announce
that the next conference along the intersection of Wikimedia & Education,
EduWiki Conference 2020 will take place in Belgrade, Serbia. The User Group
along with the support from Wikimedia Serbia will be organising the
conference next year. The conference will bring together Wikimedians,
educators, educational institutions and organisations, and other
stakeholders in the area. We will be sharing more updates regarding the
conference later in 2020, for now, we have been working on drafting a grant
proposal to the Wikimedia Foundation to support the conference.
As part of the drafting the proposal, Community Engagement Survey is
crucial to understand what community members are expecting out of such
conference, things you would like to share, learn, and do at the
conference. In that regard, I invite all those who are interested in
Wikimedia + Education (or EduWiki) to take part in the survey, and let us
know your thoughts.
You can participate in the survey at https://forms.gle/jQzJ21aYvgbDsaGf9
