Presentation will show collaboration between Wikimedia Serbia and faculties, with help of Wiki ambassadors - Wikimedians and students who communicate with professors and organize workshops for other students. I will explain how to find and recruit Wiki ambassadors and how to teach them to organize workshops and coordinate students. Wiki ambassadors are different model of collaboration with educational institutions because they work almost independently and I'll present pros and cons of their existence.

How does your proposal adds knowledge to the international community in Wikimedia and education?

Attendees will get an insight of this cooperation model and will be able to apply it in their local community. They will find out how to overcome the most common challenges (how to: find wiki ambassadors, train them, communicate with them, motivate them...)

Who is the intended ideal audience for the topic?
  • Wikipedians and Wikimedians who are interested in education
  • Students and professors
