Communicate OER project getting underway

Project Manager Sara Frank Bristow and Project Lead Pete Forsyth presented Communicate OER at the 2012 World OER Congress in Paris in June 2012.

Communicate OER, a project aiming to build Wikipedia editing skills in the Open Educational Resources community (and improve Wikipedia articles relating to OER), is now underway. The project, led by Wikipedia education veterans Pete Forsyth of Wiki Strategies and Dr. Robert Cummings of the University of Mississippi, and funded by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, will offer in-person and online Wikipedia training sessions through summer 2013. The first sessions will be next month at the Open Education Conference at the University of British Columbia. Feel free to engage through the project's home on English Wikipedia, WP:COMMOER, or add your name to the email list if you would like to be informed of the project's developments.
