EduWiki Outreach Collaborators or EWOC are a dynamic group of Wikimedians who collaborate with the education team at the Wikimedia Foundation to provide support, effective collaboration, and learning opportunities for the education community in the Wikimedia movement. We are inspired by the wonderful work of the Wikimedia Education (or EduWiki) community despite the various challenges they are facing. As a shared-learning group the EWOC commits to support volunteers in the movement with better networking, communication practices for growth, and to work together to spread the awareness on the value of Wikimedia in education.
We envision that every EduWiki community member will have the ability to share, engage, and learn from each other's work, by helping them to overcome barriers and make them feel supported.
- We cherish the diversity of our movement, diversity is the key of our movement, we come from different cultural, social, and geographical backgrounds working together to achieve a common goal to make the sum of all human knowledge available for free to everyone.
- We believe in sharing and learning from each other, we accept challenges and identify ways to overcome them collaboratively and we support and learn from each other.
- We are inspired by the work of our community, we innovate with new ideas to explore various ways to achieve our goals.
- Capacity building: Capacity building is a core goal of our work. The EWOC team will support capacity building for our EduWiki community.
- Collaboration opportunities: We are committed to working together to achieve our goals and to foster opportunities to collaborate with people in our movement whose voices are often unheard and underrepresented.
- Communication and Storytelling: We will structure our engagement channels and communications to ensure smooth information-sharing practices to reach a wider audience in our movement.
- Awareness: We will ensure that our work shows the value of Wikimedia in education. We will highlight the activities of the EWOC members for others in the movement to be aware of their work.
- Representation: We will ensure volunteers of the small projects in our movement are represented in the activities run by the EWOC.
