Learning Lab

Telling the stories of projects and the results they produce

Now accepting applications for Learning Lab service providers

Every OTF-supported project produces something. Sometimes, the final product is a shiny new app that functions great, or perhaps a research write-up complete with graphics, charts, and eye-popping color. Other times, the final output might be a semi-functional beta release that still needs some work, or a research paper that could use a copy edit and cosmetic makeover. The Learning Lab will ensure that all OTF projects - big and small, successful or not - make good on our commitment to transparency and, most importantly, collective learning.

We’re looking for researchers, writers, and graphic designers to help us track OTF projects across the finish line and ensure that, when the contract is closed out, we have something that recaps the effort - whether it was a slam dunk success or more of a learning exercise. In all cases, we feel that knowledge is created and should be shared with the internet freedom community; the Learning Lab will make that happen.

If this sounds like something you could help us with, you can learn more and apply to become a Learning Lab service provider here.

The Open Technology Fund (OTF) is looking for individuals or firms in support of our new Learning Lab, which will allow OTF to share more of what we learn through our funded projects and fellows by better presenting their outputs, successes, challenges, and lessons learned. To this end, we're looking for writers, graphic designers, and production coordinators to tell these stories.
