Greetings Program Leaders and Evaluators!

== Global Metrics Review [1] ==

The Community Resources team, in conjunction with the Program Capacity &
Learning team, are embarking on a retrospective and update of Global
Metrics [1], which includes a comprehensive retrospective on the benefits
and issues associated with Global Metrics and it's ecosystem (e.g.
training, resources, tools).

Participants are encouraged to provide their feedback, either publicly on
the project talk page, or privately via survey. We look forward to hearing
the different views on successes and challenges of these metrics as we work
to develop efforts to understand movement impact [1].

== New Global Metrics Magic Button [2] ==

The Program Capacity and Learning team and the Analytics team at WMF have
been working on making calculating Global Metrics easier. We’ve created a
Global Metrics Magic Button* [2] that calculates four Global Metrics (newly
registered editors, active editors, bytes added and removed, and articles
created or improved.)  Using this button, it should take only a minute or
two to calculate these Global Metrics for a program.

== Join the Historic Data Campaign for Education Programs! [3] ==

We are collecting historical data from all education programs to update our
narrative and to better communicate our contributions to the Wikimedia
Movement and the world. This campaign seeks to include each and every
country that has participated in the Wikipedia Education Program. We are
still waiting to hear from 50 programs.  Join the campaign! Visit the
campaign page on Outreach [3] to learn more. You can also follow the
phabricator task to track the campaign’s progress [3].

== Help The Wikipedia Library reflect on #1lib1ref [4] ==

The Wikipedia Library Team ran a social media campaign from 15-23 January
2016, asking the libraries world to “Imagine a World where Every Librarian
Added One More Reference to Wikipedia.” This campaign engaged librarians
all over the world in a conversation about how librarianship can benefit
and help the global audience of Wikipedia. By providing the libraries
community targeted messaging with clear calls to actions to make a small
edit to Wikipedia, adding a reference, we created a global campaign under
the hashtag that continues to spread -- and be a reference point for future
outreach to library communities.

We have documented both the outcomes of the campaign and the experiments
that we ran as part of the campaign [4]. We are looking for feedback on
what we learned, please join the conversations.

As always, stay up to date with upcoming news and events by following our
events page [5]!
