Program Capacity and Learning/Annual Plan/Project: Wikimedia Resource Center

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Short description of the project[edit]

At the heart of our work is connection, communication and learning across communities, but where do we go to connect, communicate and learn? How can we leverage movement wide learning through sharing of best practices and lessons learned?
“The Wikimedia Resource Center” is a single, point of entry where affiliates, staff and volunteers can find the information they need , polish outreach, and distill learning. Most importantly it’s a place where community leaders (Primary audience: Program Leaders, Affiliate Staff and Volunteers) can find each other and share learning as well as connect with Wikimedia Foundation staff. Wikimedia Foundation Teams will be able to connect their most important resources and information to the central hub and participating teams will learn and share best practices for knowledge sharing in this cross team project). Phase 1 of the project will provide the doorway and foundation to continued improvement in the curation of movement wide knowledge sharing. We will also explore options for search optimization on Meta and Within the Resources Center/Team Portals with Discovery.

What does success look like?[edit]

Create a single point of entry resource center/landing hub which serves as a doorway to Wikimedia resources and learning.
