Learning patterns

(Redirected from Grants:Learning patterns)
Learning and Evaluation

A collection of solutions and effective practices in the Wikimedia world.

Learning patterns are a simple way to document an important lesson. They explain how to reproduce a successful strategy for executing or evaluating an activity, such as running an edit-a-thon, or how to run a survey.

In a bit more detail, a learning pattern is (1) a guideline that provides advice on how to do something and (2) a template with clear title and consistent format so people can quickly find the information they need when they browse through the library of learning patterns. If you've been involved in a Wikimedia activity, you've probably learned some valuable tips, tricks, advice, or considerations about what works and what doesn't for that kind of activity. You can read more about learning patterns and this project here on the Wikimedia blog.
