TO A WIKI WEEKEND - FEBRUARY 14 & 15, 2004:
We would like to build an interactive database on Open Space applications in education. While the wiki space is already open and waiting for your stories, the weekend of January 17-18 is intended to be a focused time for our real time interaction. Will you help the Community create an archive of case studies/ stories/experiences involving Open Space and education?
Our objectives are twofold:
1. Improve our practice as facilitators by learning from the experience of others who have used OST in education.
2. Create a rich resource for future sponsors to visit and understand the benefits of using Open Space in education.
Our dedicated wiki is can be accessed by directing one's web browser to:
We invite you to add stories, comment, ask questions. While it will be launched officially in real-time on the weekend of January 17 &18, it is already open, and it will remain open indefinitely for you to post new experiences and comment on old ones. In this way, our Open Space in Education wiki will remain live for the use of practitioners, educationalists and any other stakeholders in education, such as students and parents.
Please remember to bookmark this wiki web site for future use:
