Hello OEGlobal Community!
My name is Alex Wanstrath and I’m an Instructional Design and Technology Ph.D. Candidate focusing my dissertation on the lived experience of U.S.-based higher education faculty who create and user Open Educational Resources (OER). I am a former high school social studies teacher who used OER in my classroom, but have since left education for private business where I’m now a Learning and Development Manager.
I am always looking for connections to discuss OER, Open Education Practices (or Pedagogy or OER-Enabled Practices, or whatever phrase to describe using OER in instructional approaches), student impact, and OER & OEP research.
I am actively recruiting for my dissertation and have had the great fortunate of making some amazing connections. If you are interested in my study (participant or for discussion) or would like to discuss the broader subject of OER, please reach out! I can be contacted here or via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can’t wait to enjoy more about this community and engage more great people.
