Embracing continuous learning
At its core, Wikimedia CH is involved in education, with our goal being to bring free educational content to the world. Our actions focus on bringing added value to teachers and learners in Switzerland. Progamme Education embraces the concept of continuous learning for all, not just for the next generation of Wikipedians.
Wikimedia CH supports the development and adoption of effective educational practices in a digital world. We aim to provide new learning solutions for teachers and educators and to become a recognised player in the Swiss education system. We focus on schools and universities, but we also embrace lifelong learning for everyone. Through our activities, Wikimedia’s open content, platforms, technologies and community find opportunities to be used meaningfully.
If you would like to receive training on how to best use these tools in class or want to know how to contribute to them, don’t hesitate to get in touch!
Our event formats
Wikimedia CH offers several event formats around Education. The most requested are collaborative events such as edit-a-thons, information events, or Wiki days and Wiki camps (one-day immersion and week-long immersion seminars, respectively). Wikimedia CH trainers are also available to come into schools to give workshops.
