PS: strategy should be a separate thread.

+1 to Vojtechcs suggestion.

This is exactly what we did last year: set goals collaboratively and then followed what throughtout the year (at least the parts that were possible).

It it high time to re-evaluate, set new goals, ones that also align with the "bigger picture", i.e. the movement's strategic efforts.

Just a side note, maybe it's time for the WMF education team to conduct a survey to find out what the worldwide education community currently needs from you the most. WMF has an expert team from within the community  - "education collaborative" - which are well positioned to work together with the WMF education employees in formulating strategy and annual plans. What do you think? Good/bad idea?

Happy (Gregorian) New Year! 

I hope you all had a great start to 2017, and I hope you enjoyed the stories that were released in December.  They were very interesting and insightful! 

To briefly comment on the response to the December newsletter release,  I have received your comments and inputs with high regard, and have learned a lot about you in the process. 

As Tighe mentioned, we are presently having a conversation about a new direction for the newsletter this year. I have moved the conversation here

All of the volunteers working with us are valuable, appreciated, and part of an extraordinary community. I know that together we can achieve great things, so let's all work towards making 2017 a remarkable year for the Wikipedia Education Program!

warmest regards,

Hi Romaine,

Yes, it is a good idea to document the publication process step-by-step. 

The education newsletter team has done so here:

Hope this helps,

Hi all,

It gives me the feeling that it would be good to document the publication process of the newsletter. We have one for This Month in GLAM and makes sure we do not forget anything, etc. I must say I was wondering when the invitation to write was sent, I have not seen it, but I was a bit ill so could have missed it.

But a step-by-step procedure would solve multiple issues I think.

Anna I am happy that you brought this up: I was eagerly expecting a notification on my talk page (actually I remember there used to be cross-posting so that an educator could not miss the invitation to write!) and I had exciting news to share... and I am also a member of the Education mailing list and I do not recall any mention of the newsletter. That probably explains what there were only four stories... (how were the other educators alerted BTW?) As for the new proposed format of the newsletter, I have expressed my opinion in the other thread.

Happy Holidays to all:-)

Dear Nichole, 

Thank you for sharing the newsletter. In the past, the newsletter team, which Sailesh linked to, has been contacted about helping to produce it. It seems that you have produced it entirely on your own. Why this depature from previous practice without discussion? I had no talk page notifications nor any emails. Was this issue of newsletter copyedited prior to publication? It doesn't look like it, based on the the page history. Also, there are translation estension breaks all over the news page: and there is a redlink on the homepage: The community is happy to help publish the newsletter, if you include us.

I am happy to announce the release of the Wikipedia Education Program's December Newsletter.  There are some great stories in this issue! 

If there is anyone in the community who has the "MassMessage sender" user right I would kindly ask your help this month to send the newsletter out via that channel. 

My best to you all as we finish out 2016!
