About WikiRandy

WikiRandy is...Randy Fisher.

He began working with Wayne Mackintosh at the Commonwealth of Learning in early 2007. When he created his account on WikiEducator, he called himself "WikiRandy". And so, the journey began.

With more than 28,000 edits, Randy is one of the top editors in the WikiEducator community, and is responsible for supporting the community's growth in a number of ways: community needs analysis; coaching and mentoring users; wiki skills training; and project development.

He wrote his MA thesis in Organization Management and Development, 'on' the wiki, and 'in' the wiki - Primal Needs Gone Digital: Educators' Motivations in an Open Wiki Environment, 2009.

It was through this experience that Randy truly understood how complex, self-organizing ecosystems like WikiEducator work, and The Control Paradox: how he could be in control while letting go. He also developed expertise in building sustainable communities, networks and alliances.

Randy is an OER leader and supports the OER movement whenever possible. He is responsible for many contributions to WikiEducator. He ensured that iCentro Networks is a signatory to the Cape Town Open Education Declaration.

In addition to WikiEducator and OER Foundation, Randy has worked with many of the leading organizations at the forefront of OERs around the globe including Commonwealth of Learning; Community College Consortium for Open Education Resources; OER Africa; and the Monterey Institute for Technology and Education. He has also provided counsel to the Wikimedia Foundation.
