Movement Strategy/Skill Development Infrastructure
This initiative was one of the priorities (from the initiative cluster C) selected for global implementation during the Movement Strategy Transition events. It was also widely-prioritized by local communities and affiliates, especially emerging ones.
Content from the recommendation:
Invest in new or existing technological infrastructure which facilitates learning of skills through functional, collaborative, real-time tools and quality content. This requires:
- A user-friendly, searchable, multilingual, multi-format, curated platform to host learning resources (e.g. tutorials, videos, online training, etc.).
- Learning resources (e.g. “learning packs”) directed to individuals and organizations joining the Movement to encourage self-directed knowledge acquisition and development of skills within our practices and roles.
- Learning packs required to understand issues that relate to scalability, sustainability and other areas considered in the Wikimedia Movement Strategy recommendations.
