Personal statement

I'm one of the lead researchers for OER Research Hub ( which is a research project founded by Hewlett Foundation. We do worldwide research into the impact of OER at different levels of education. We offer advice on OER implementation as well as access to one of the largest networks of OER expertise. We are particularly interested in hearing from practitioners who have evidence about the difference OER has made to them of their students.
