Drupal Open Learning is a project-based learning program that provides training in a wide range of areas ranging from site planning, drafting proposals, project management, information architecture, development, design, infrastructure, to Drupal workflows and community. It does this by pairing apprentices with a mentor or mentors, thus gaining exposure to real-world scenarios and connections with the local and global community. The knowledge transfer allows apprentices to become proficient, contribute back to the community, and retain the skills for gainful employment in the field of their choice.
Drupal Open Learning will:
- Establish a process for open, collaborative projects
- Create learning opportunities for apprentices and interns to work with mentors to create real world solutions
- Provide tools, best practices, resources and support for open learning projects
- Provide a means for multiple stakeholders to collectively support and fund open source projects.
