In March, just in time for Open Education Week, the Communicate OER project will launch the free course "Writing Wikipedia Articles: The Basics and Beyond" in conjunction with Peer to Peer University's new School of Open. This six week, facilitated course is designed primarily to people in the Open Educational Resources movement, which includes educators of all kinds; but all will be welcome. Those interested in teaching Wikipedia are invited to join us as we design the course. In addition to the link above, we will be developing detailed course notes on the WikiEducator site. Please feel free to edit in either place, or get in touch (via the Communicate OER talk page, @CommOER on Twitter, etc. -Pete (talk)
