The word "OPEN" appears over a door that is partially open with a handle that has been pulled down.

I am delighted to announce the forthcoming publication of my new book (co-edited with Robert Biswas-Diener) by Ubiquity Press: Open: The Philosophy and Practices that are Revolutionizing Education and Science

From the back cover:

Affordable education.
Transparent science.
Accessible scholarship.

These ideals are slowly becoming a reality thanks to the open education, open science, and open access movements. Running separate—if parallel—courses, they all share a philosophy of equity, progress, and justice. This book shares the stories, motives, insights, and practical tips from global leaders in the open movement.


I advocate for open educational practices and conduct research on open education and the scholarship of teaching and learning.

I am the University Teaching Fellow in Open Studies and a faculty member in the Department of Psychology at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, where I run the Open & Innovative Pedagogies Lab. I also currently serve as a Senior Open Education Research & Advocacy Fellow with BCcampus, a Faculty Workshop Facilitator with the Open Textbook Networkand an Associate Editor of Psychology Learning and Teaching.

I previously served as an OER Research Fellow with the Open Education Group, a Faculty Fellow with the BC Open Textbook Project, and the Associate Editor of NOBA Psychology.
