Personal statement

I am the founding director of the OER Foundation and the UNESCO, Commonwealth of Learning and ICDE Chair in OER at Otago Polytechnic and the Foundation. I am coordinating the establishment of the OERu, an international innovation partnership which aims to provide free learning opportunities for all students worldwide with pathways for OER learners to achieve credible credentials.

I'm an educator by choice and joined this profession to share knowledge freely.
