Shape Wikimedia UK’s plan for education work in 2017-18
1. We are planning an edu conference in 2017, get involved
2. The meeting will give you an opportunity to feed into Wikimedia UK education policy
3. Support for travel is available!
One of our key priorities in the upcoming activity year will be to support the use of the Wikimedia projects as important tools for education and learning in the UK.
How that would be achieved is open to discussion though. This September, we are preparing an annual plan for ‘17-18, and so we are calling anyone with interest and/or background in education to get together in order to discuss this. We are meeting a week before the submission deadline, which is the perfect timing to assess and contribute to the plan in a focused way.
We would be looking to get feedback on what we've written into the plan by this point, suggestions for specific projects, and pledges to get involved in delivery of particular activities and projects.
As a specific topic of discussion, we would also want to talk about an idea we are working on of a small education conference in early 2017 - to get feedback on what this could look like.
The workshop will be facilitated by our trustee with special interest in education, Josie Fraser.
There will also be a general (not education focused) discussion on the 2017-18 plan from 3:00-5:00pm. You are welcome to attend that session too, I'll be sending out another Eventbrite for this one.
Lunch will be provided.Travel costs will be covered if WMUK is notified in advance to email@example.com
