*m/Oppenheim Associates* is assisting the *Wiki Education Foundation* in
the search for their *Director of Programs*, and we are reaching out to the
community for suggestions.

Located in the Presidio in San Francisco, the Wiki Education Foundation
<http://wikiedu.org/> supports innovative uses of Wikipedia and related
projects in communities of teaching, learning, and inquiry in the United
States and Canada. The Foundation aims to improve the breadth, scope and
quality of Wikipedia content; enhance student information fluency; and
increase the number and diversity of contributors to the free knowledge
movement by engaging educators, researchers and students.  It serves as the
bridge between academia and Wikipedia, and runs programs that seek to build
connections between universities and Wikipedia (the “Classroom Project”).
Since 2010, more than 300 university instructors participating in the
program have assigned students to contribute course-related content to
Wikipedia. In a single term 69 million people read the Wikipedia articles
students have edited. Students have donated the equivalent of 28 volumes of
a printed encyclopedia to the world, thus far.

In 2016, Wiki Ed will launch an unprecedented initiative to communicate
science to the public. By connecting the knowledge of universities to the
publishing power of Wikipedia, the initiative will increase public
understanding of science, engage students in science communication, and
create a lasting contribution accessible to millions of readers. The
project is in the nascent stages, but Wiki Ed has begun developing
relationships with scientific associations and universities, and is engaged
in other forms of outreach. There is more work to be done.

The Director of Programs will be a big-picture thinker who has the
ingenuity and creativity to take both existing programs and new initiatives
to the next level. They will direct the program team to achieve high impact
while also driving long-term strategic vision of the Foundation’s
programmatic work.

The complete position description may be found here
.  Your suggestions are most welcome, and please feel free to forward this
note as you deem appropriate.

All the best,

Lisa Grossman
