Schools on Internet Governance (SIG)
This is the wiki of the IGF Dynamic Coalition Schools on Internet Governance. The mission of the DC is to bring together the different schools to better understand how best to offers instruction. While each school develops its own model and curriculum, each school, especially new efforts, can learn from the other schools. The purpose of the wiki is for schools to share their materials, and for schools to learn from the work that has been done by other schools.
Any school that wishes to share its materials is welcome to contribute. To do so please request an account and share your plans with the wiki maintainer via firstname.lastname@example.org.
The main web site for the DC SIG can be found at: https://www.igschools.net/.

Materials provided by schools participating in DC SIG
In this section, the materials provided to the DC SIG by various schools are listed by school name. Given that every school is different and that schools orient themselves to needs defined by their mission, these materials are not specifically endorsed by the DC SIG. The materials provide examples of how the contributing schools organize their school, their curriculum and their special programs. All schools are encouraged to submit materials they think may help in the cause of spreading the outreach and acceptance of SIGs.
