Communication StrategyEdit

Open CallEdit

The call to professors will be open in the last school week in São Paulo at USP, UNESP, UNICAMP, FGV SP and PUC and in Rio de Janeiro at UFRJ, UNIRIO, UFF, UERJ and FGV. Close to São Paulo city we will try to outreach UFABC and Unifesp.

In São Paulo we are going to use mainly our institutional contacts and in Rio de Janeiro mainly our network of professors and students, although in these carioca universities we are also going to try to reach professor through the institution administration, which can be more difficult because of the strike in federal universities in São Paulo.

Possibly email to other states universites will be sent, see the talk page. The brochure will be sent as a link in the email if ready on time.

Other MediaEdit

Social MediaEdit

  • Release a link and a short note on the Open Call on Wikimedia Brasil Twitter and Facebook accounts and group
    • When: once a week
  • Release a link and a short note on the Open Call on Wikipedia-pt Twitter and Facebook accounts and group
    • When: first and last weeks

Wikipedia in Portuguese and Wikimedia BrasilEdit

  • Publish an announcement in the first week and a notice in the begining of the last week

Mailing ListsEdit

  • Send to related interest mailing lists and ask professors currently engaged in the program to share on their academic mailing lists
  • Wikimedia Foundation All Mailing list (or other?)

PressEdit

  • Share with journalists who we have talked to about the Education Program and the Catalyst Program (end of first week)

Talking to ProfessorsEdit

  • Making sure all professors currently engaged in the Program are aware of the open call and making sure they understand what changes and what does not change with the Open Call

JournalistsEdit

We decided to wait and gauge the need to engage other journalists and other media attention. We don't want to over-publicize and have far too many applications, both because it would be hard to rate them, but also because we could risk disappointing more people than necessary. If we come to mid-July and find that we could use some more applications, we will plan on engaging these mediums.
