Wiki Education welcomes Peter B. Kaufman to our Advisory Board as its newest member helping to raise our profile to potential supporters.
“I am excited to join the Advisory Board of Wiki Education because their work is critically important, especially for knowledge institutions, such as universities, museums, and archives,” Peter says.
Peter is a writer, teacher, and film producer, who works at MIT Open Learning and is the author of The New Enlightenment and the Fight to Free Knowledge. A sample of Peter’s prestigious positions previously held include: associate director of Columbia University’s Center for Teaching and Learning; president and executive producer of Intelligent Television; co-chair of the JISC Film & Sound Think Tank in the United Kingdom; co-chair of the Copyright Committee of the Association of Moving Image Archivists; president and publisher of TV Books at Broadway Video; and a consultant to the Library of Congress’s National Audiovisual Conservation Center.
He is a member of the editorial board of The Moving Image and the editorial advisory board of the Russian Library at Columbia University Press. He has worked with media and nonprofits for 35 years and is at work on a new book about the new responsibilities of knowledge institutions during our time of epistemic chaos.
“For my entire professional life, I have been an advocate for increasing access to information and the tools to disseminate it. I’m honored to be invited to play a role for Wiki Education,” Peter adds.
We are delighted to have Peter’s extensive experience on our Advisory Board as we strive to realize our vision of the sum of all human knowledge on Wikipedia.
