Goals and Objectives

The underlying goal of this working group is to develop a Curriculum Framework for Drupal Learning. To reach this goal we will:

Develop a common language for providing learning experiences and materials for those in the Drupal community.

This has been the current focus of the Learning Drupal working group.

Develop a framework for courses or learning tracks covering all aspects of Drupal

Projects, Tasks and Initiatives

The following projects and initiatives have a certain degree of overlap and compliment:

  • Learning Drupal working group - goal is to develop a common language for providing learning experiences and materials for those in the Drupal community.
  • Drupal Guilds & Open Guilds - The Open Guilds website at http://openguilds.org/ (and its cousin http://drupalguilds.org/ for Drupal) is a central location for grassroots certifications for practitioners of various Open Source software. The idea is that rather than a top-down certification process where people pay money to an organization to take a test, people instead prove to their peers their ability to craft in their field.
  • Open Source Training Curriculum - goal is to create a set of git-for-Drupal training tools
  • NJIT Open Training Initiative - The overall mission is to create open curriculum that is developed and peer reviewed by the community.
  • Open Garden Project - a summer program that builds connections between technologists & community gardeners through building web-based tools. Specifically, we will use Drupal, and encourage participation in open source.
  • Drupal Open Curriculum - project is for collaborating on open curriculum for the Drupal project.
  • Drupal Kata - a project-based learning program for Drupal. 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. Facilitating the production of an Open Drupal Curriculum is a main objective.
  • Drupal Dojo - originally created to provide a structured and safe learning environment for individuals looking to ascend the Drupal learning curve, the Dojo is expanding to be a online learning resource center.
  • DITA documentation distribution for Drupal - development of a documentation distribution for Drupal that uses a similar approach as the localization server and that enables a distributed/federated documentation architecture for the Drupal project.

Learning, Mentoring, Training, and Education groups

  • Drupal Kata - The Drupal Kata is a 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.
  • Curriculum and Training - This is a group to organize and discuss the development of Drupal courseware to be used for training students at Drupal Camp and other training events.
  • Drupal Dojo - The Drupal Dojo was created for apprentice/journeyman developers who want to increase proficiency, and for experts looking to grow the pool of Drupal talent.
  • DROP - DROP is a program dedicated to helping people find easy, short-term ways of making valuable contributions to Drupal, as well as helping them become a part of the Drupal community.
  • Drupal in Education - This group is an umbrella group for supporting and discussing the various uses of Drupal in educational settings.
  • Google Summer of Code - 2010 edition of the program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source projects.
  • Google Highly Open Participation Contest (GHOP) - initiative to get pre-university students involved in open source software development. The contest brought together more than 350 students from around the world to help ten Open Source projects make improvements to their code base, marketing materials, documentation and user experience research.
