Baptism Into WikiEducator
This is my campaign page for the up-comming Community Council Elections. My association with WE has been like a fairy tale - "lost one day, found WE the next day, and HERE I AM, happier with life than ever!!". After participating in the group discussions for some time, i joined the first Workshop in the Learning4Content project. I have never turned my back since!!
My Contributions to WikiEducator
Since discovering WikiEducator (WE), i have been on fast-track to contributing to the development of OpenResources. Open Education Resources (OERs) are the way forward in ensuring, first, that there are materials available for ALL; and second, that the materials validity and relevance are sustainable. I have contributed snippets and thoughts to major content development processes around the world. I believe the spirit behind wikis is the opportunity to also contribute back to the community some of the benefits you gained from freely using content.
I have contributed to several contents on WE. While i have been the primary developer on certein topics and contents, i have also edited and made contributions to other contents.
- My primary Content contributed freely to WE (complete must can be added on by WikiEds) can be found here.
- Other major Content contributions i am working on can be found here.
- Topics i am specialising in for the moment are in the area of Project Mangement and Events. For the next few months, i will be focusing on Events Mangement and its allied topics.
- Other topics i have interest in are in Management Science/studies, Entreprenourship, and Strategic Management
- I am also interested and able (and willing) to contribute to contents and issues on HRD/HRM, ICT for Sustainable Development (ICT4SD) and ICT for Youth Development (ICT4YD).
- Contents have also been contributed as part of my WikiNeighbour activities
- I am also a Learning Designer for WE
- Kudos to all members of the wikieducator group,
