Welcome to my page!
Who am I
Hello, Everyone. My name is Shani Evenstein and I'm from Israel.
I work at Tel-Aviv University [TAU] at Sackler School of Medicine and also teach, mainly children, English, Math, Piano and Yoga [not in that particular order.. :)].
I have a B.A. in English Lit and French Culture, Faculty of Humanities, TAU, and am now working towards an M.A. in East Asian Studies [specifically India and Sanskrit], at TAU.
Have been studying and teaching Yoga since 2000.
What I'm doing in the wiki-world
After attending Wikimania in Haifa in August 2011, I have joined the Hebrew Wikipedia community and became a member of Wikimedia Israel.
From the beginning, I have been especially interested in GLAM-Wiki and Wiki in Education.
Since then, I have been fortunate to initiate many GLAM collaborations in Israel and serve as WM-Il National GLAM Projects Coordinator. I'm also heavily involved in EDU collaborations and recently initiated the first full Wiki course, that gives Med students full academic credit for it, at the Sackler School of Medicine, Tel-Aviv University.
Since June 2012, I also serve as an active board member for WM-IL.
If you have any questions about GLAM in Israel or EDU collaborations I'm involved with or are simply interested in saying hello, please feel welcome to drop a line in my talk page, or to simply send an email to shani at wikimedia.org.il.
