|Notice of paid work relating to Wikipedia|
From 2012 to 31 July 2014, I will be project manager of Communicate OER. This project aims to build the Wikipedia community and the quality of Wikipedia content. I will generally be doing very little editing in article space in connection with this project. When I do, it is in order to assist and train new Wikipedia contributors, not to advance an editorial objective.
Feel free to contact me on my talk page if you have questions, ideas, or concerns relating to my work.
Hi there! I'm Sara Frank Bristow, an educational researcher focusing on learning technology, blended/virtual K-12, online higher education, and open educational resources – with an emphasis on wikis as research, education, and dissemination tools. My company is Salient Research. I've been in this line of work since 2002. I'm currently working with Pete Forsyth and Bob Cummings on the Communicate OER project to improve Wikipedia articles related to open educational resources. We ran our fourth course on Writing Wikipedia Articles from February to April 2014. The project is winding down, but we're going out with a bang - sign up WP:OERBARN for our "Wiki barnraising" event in Oakland and online on 19 July 2014.
Our School of Open Course
Wikipedia-wise, I'm mostly working on WikiProject Open/Communicate OER and the related course on Writing Wikipedia Articles (WIKISOO) – in conjunction with the School of Open at P2PU. This has been a great experience, with about 200 students enrolled for each of four sessions! The archived webinars are all online and a self-paced version will soon be available.
