Story
Tagline
director of online learning & innovation, phd student, HE researcher
Introduction
I am currently working on my Ph.D. My focus has shifted from studying just DIY learning to looking at the many disruptions that are affecting higher education today. I still love to discuss DIY and informal learning (such as MOOCs) and alternative forms of credit (such as Open Badges). When I’m not thinking about the future of higher education, you can find me buried in school work or helping to put on TEDxBuffalo.
