Profile

Personal statement

I have been interested in open and distance learning since my early days at the UK Open University and then spent many years researching online education. In 2011 my focus changed to OER and I am now on my third major study in the area of OER and MOOCs. My first study, for the UK JISC/HEA OER Programme was on Learner Use of OER; my current study, POERUP, for the European Commission, is on policies for OER Uptake; we are now starting a new project researching the use of OER for shared curriculum in K12 and HE, with particular reference to the Common Core and similar programmes for First Year University teaching.
