Wikiversity assistant teacher program[edit]


The Wikiversity assistant teacher program has a list of criteria for self-certification.

Valid self-certification could be a selection criterion for school wiki support through the foundation.

Laboratory school[edit]

The proposal is to launch a laboratory school for the Wikiversity assistant teacher program, which could at the same time aim to offer the International Baccalaureate. The term "laboratory school" could be seen as a reference to educational research conducted by faculty and administration but also to educational research conducted by pupils because assistant teacher groups could be motivated to become educational researchers themselves.[1][2] Consequently the research assignment could be seen as a continuous assignment for the whole school community.

Private schools are a marginal occurrence in Germany,[3] which means in Germany appears to be more than sufficient market potential.
