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.

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.

The four modules are the basics of what we as a community care about and why. We’ve tried… Read more →
