Hello soon-to-be wikiambassadors!Welcome to our first L4C WikiEducator skills training workshop in Trinidad and Tobago. This two-day hands-on face-to-face activity, hosted by the Curriculum Planning and Development Division and facilitated by the Distance Education Unit, Ministry of Education, will equip you with the wiki skills needed to start developing content immediately.

Purpose of the Workshop

This workshop was born out of a need for the development of a training programme in the effective implementation of School Based Assessments for CXC CSEC / CAPE Physics teachers. Teachers were selected from each education district in Trinidad and varied in age as well as teaching experience. It is hoped that this workshop will spark the beginning of a project based on A Training Guide to School Based Assessment for Caribbean Physics Teachers.

It is also hoped that this workshop will sensitize teachers to the potential wikieducator holds for teaching and learning and will foster a zeal for using wikieducator in creative ways. As newly annointed wikiambassadors, participants of this first workshop will be encouraged to spread the wiki word and become active members of an ever widening local as well as regional wikicommunity and to contribute to regional as well as local L4C initiatives, long after the workshop has ended.
