Iterating organizing structures

Here’s another stab at trying to nail down the competencies and topics leaders in the open community need to have and an organizing structure for Teach Like Mozilla. I’ve worked in the initial suggestions from the community, and made quite a few new changes as I was sorting and organizing content from across Mozilla Learning – seeing those resources just… Read more →

Open Web Leadership

Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve been talking about an organizing structure for future (and current) Teach Like Mozilla content and curriculum. This stream of curriculum is aimed at helping leaders gain the competencies and skills needed for teaching, organizing and sustaining learning for the web.

Web Literacy Micro-Models

This will give you a general overview of how Mozilla should likely organize it’s learning content (from a pedagogic point of view, which may or may not interest anyone). This post goes one step further and begins defining micro-models. A micro-model, as I said in… Read more →
