Dr. TJ Bliss, Program Officer, Education Program, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation

I first saw Dr. Rajiv Jhangiani speak at the 2015 Open Textbook Summit. Dr. Jhangiani’s keynote was phenomenal, hitting just the right notes on a very important topic. His style was engaging and dynamic, with just the right mixture of humor and gravity to drive home points in a memorable way. I have personally taken to spreading several of the key ideas Dr. Jhangiani explored during that talk. In the months following, I have had the pleasure to meet with Dr. Jhangiani several times and learn more about his passion and expertise in open educational resources and, specifically, open pedagogy and open textbooks. I would highly recommend him as an effective spokesperson for OER and open education in general.
