Hi Everyone --
Just in case you don't monitor the WikiEd lists, I'm posting a copy of the announcement to our Council Members. Please circulate, blog and spread the word :-). Help us achieve a new record for the number of enrolled particpants for a Learning4Content workshop.

http://wikieducator.org/Learning4Content/Workshops/eL4C41/RegisterAnnouncing the "WikiEducator Gives Back" Online workshop
WikiEducator has the freedom to establish new
community traditions :-)
The response from a number of our
leading L4C facilitators has inspired me to launch the "WikiEducator
Gives Back" online workshop in celebration of our achievements in
building wiki skills for OER futures.
L4C facilitators will be giving back in two ways:
their time freely to assist with facilitating this record breaking
workshop attempt - (Designated as L4C Facilitators on the workshop page)
- Sharing their knowledge with future L4C facilitators to join
our international team of WikiEducator online facilitators. (Designated
as L4C Co-Facilitators on the workshop page)
Foundation will institute this as an annual WikiEducator event which
- Break the previous year's record for hosting the largest free
online wiki workshop measured by the number of registered participants
an opportunity for educators around the world to meet and interact with
some of WikiEducators' top editors and seasoned wiki facilitators
measured by their approximate edit count in WikiEducator
We aim to have a little fun. We will award community Kudos
- The workshop participant who achieves
the highest number of edits during the workshop
- The Facilitor /
or Co-Facilitator who achieves the highest number of support edits
during the workshop.
Hopefully, we can institute this as an annual event where
"WikiEducator Gives Back"
Be sure to spread the word and register
An open question -- Any estimates on the 2010 record for the highest
number of enrolled participants for an free online L4C workshop?
-- you gotta love the notion of sharing knowledge freely!
