Wikimedia UK is excited to announce that Toni Sant is joining our team as our Education Organiser. Toni will be starting work during the week beginning 18 March. Toni is already known among active Wikimedians in the UK as well as globally as he has been active with Wikipedia education programmes for the past couple of years. Below Toni introduces himself in his own words. We’re sure you’ll join us in extending him a warm welcome. Here is a message from him:

“Hello fellow Wikimedians, I’m Toni Sant. I have long been an admirer of the global Wikimedia movement and have integrated work from my teaching in Higher Education with the English Wikipedia. I am currently also employed at the University of Hull’s Scarborough Campus as Director of Research in the School of Arts and New Media. For the last three academic years I have integrated a Wikipedia assessment in my undergraduate university teaching for all my students and I have also introduced other teaching colleagues to adopt Wikipedia as a resource for some of their assignments. You can view a presentation I gave at EduWiki about some of this work here."
