Hope your February is going well.
I am writing this email to invite you all to the very first regional
education meeting. This month we are starting with our community members
based in the CEE region. You can use these regional meetings as an
opportunity to learn and share your projects, tools, or ideas with the
education community from the CEE region.
These regional education meetings are planned by the community specialists
of the EduWiki Outreach Collaborators (EWOC) and the Education team. We
are using this as an opportunity to strengthen the EduWiki network, explore
collaboration opportunities, and identify common practices or challenges
that are faced by our community members in different regions of the world.
We are launching these regional education meetings as a pilot initiative to
complement our general monthly office hours, we encourage you to
participate, share your ideas, and help this become a fully community-led
Our first CEE education meeting will take place on 18th February 2021 at
13:00 UTC <https://zonestamp.toolforge.org/1613653217>, it will be led by
Nebojša Ratkovic, Education Program Manager of Wikimedia Serbia and EWOC
community specialist for the region. At this CEE meeting, Nebojša will
share some highlights from the 15 years of education work by Wikimedia
Serbia and have a questions-and-answers round. If you have other ideas,
topics, or questions you want to ask, you can add them to the agenda
here. We will try to answer them during the meeting. We are looking
forward to seeing you there!
As a reminder, our general monthly office hours are still available for you
to join, share your work, connect with other community members, and get
help or advice from the Education team. The next general office hour is
scheduled for 24th February 2021 at 14:00 UTC, you can find the topics of
the meetings here. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach
out to me.
