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. I also currently serve as a Senior Open Education Research & Advocacy Fellow with BCcampus, an Associate Editor of Psychology Learning and Teaching, and an Ambassador for the Center for Open Science.

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


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 publication of Open: The Philosophy and Practices that are Revolutionizing Education and Science (Ubiquity Press), available for free download in digital formats and from Amazon and Book Depository in print formats.

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.
