In this session the most successful WMRS projects within Education program will be presented. A special accent will be places on a quality of students articles and on the sustainability of the projects. It is very important to train teachers on how to be actively involved in the implementation of Education program in their institution. We will also point out some other practices so other Wikimedia chapters could apply some of them in practice.
Participants will get better insight into WMRS Education program, the successes and challenges that we encounter in our work. They will have the opportunity to learn how to implement something from what we do, such as accredited seminars or wiki student project. In addition, they will see the benefits of training teachers in order to work independently.
