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:
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 Network, and an Associate Editor of Psychology Learning and Teaching.
