Budget Change Request - July 9, 2020 - Curriculum Development[edit]

Budget change request[edit]

We would like to spend $1,500 to employ a curriculum development expert to work with the WiR to adapt OCLC's curriculum for our context. We would take this money from the WiR salary.


When speaking with OCLC, they recommended we have an expert work on curriculum adaptation to make sure it would suit this new cultural and educational context.


This request is approved. --Marti (WMF) (talk) 14:57, 9 July 2020 (UTC)
