An ambassador for WikiEducator is an enthusiastic champion who takes on a formal or informal leadership role to promote and coordinate activities at their own institution or community, or within their own country.

Ambassadors for WikiEducator assist in the realisation of our strategy by promoting activities which:

  • help build the WikiEducator community,
  • develop skills and build capacity for all WikiEducators,
  • promote and advocate free educational content, and
  • identify and implement innovation in WikiEducator.

Ambassadors are people who have a passion to widen access to quality education through open networks and free content. They identify themselves in the WikiEducator community and keep us informed of their ambassadorial activities.
