Hi, my name is Patricia Schlicht and I have been working with and for Dr. Wayne Mackintosh as the WikiEducator Learning4Content Coordinator and Community Builder on Wikieducator.

I have gained extensive knowledge in open and distance learning (ODL) and technology-mediated learning since 2000 when I started working in the industry. I was introduced to the concept of Free/Libre Open Education in eLearning in May 2006 through Dr. Wayne Mackintosh, the founder of WikiEducator. I have since become an avid WikiEducator and online facilitator for our Learning4Content workshops and are very much involved in promoting WikiEducator and building capacity in the global communities. I am actively monitoring and evaluating WikiEducator activities, among the many other activities I am involved in, building a sustainable global network of WikiEducators. Feel free to visit my page, to leave me comments--Patricia Schlicht 18:58, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

Hi. My name is Debbie Bridge I am currently working within the DEHub (Distance Education Hub) at the University of New England in Australia. The DEHub is a government funded research project designed to promote best practice and research in Distance Education. The DEHub team is planning to utilise WikiEducator in doing this. I am filling an administrative role within the project and hope to gain an understanding of how this space is used and obtain the practical skills that will assist the project in utilising the site. I am quite new to online learning, but looking forward to gaining knowledge and participating in some of the technology that DEHub is promoting. --Dbridge2 01:29, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

Hi , my name is Jo Fothergill and I completed the last wikieducators workshop eL4C29 . I've dabbled in wikis for several years and am now getting into wiki work in a big way. I teach at Raumati Beach School, on the Kapiti Coast of New Zealand. I'm teaching Year 3&4 (7-9 year olds) and running an eLearning environment in my classroom. Approximately 70-80% of the work is presented online via a wiki and I'm encouraging self-management of learning. I'm constantly learning and striving to improve my knowledge of Web2.0 and OER and see how it fits into my many varied roles I take as part of my teaching profession. I'm looking forward to eL4C30 and learning more about facilitating via WE. --dragonsinger57 22:20, 18 September 2009 (UTC)
