Desde Costa Rica, el saludo popular es: ¡Pura vida!


My name is Kate Richardson, and I live in Connecticut, U.S.A. I work for Springfield College as an instructional designer.

Open Education is important to my work in higher education, because our Content Developers are encouraged to use OERs almost exclusively in the development of our online and blended courses. On a personal level, OERs are important to me because sustainability is important to me, and I think that the curation of high-quality OERs can be one way that I can contribute in some small way to indirectly promoting environmental justice one day. For now, I’m just gathering all the information I can.

When teaching abroad, I have benefitted from the informal sharing of resources among a group of peer teachers.

I’m new to OERs as a movement, so this year I would like to use this community space to gain a sense of the momentum in the field and gain a sense for the variety of expertise that exists.

Looking forward to learning from everyone!

Hello et bonjour du Canada (Ottawa)

Hello Team RLOE!

I’m Sharon, department chair-librarian at one of the City Colleges of Chicago! I look forward to meeting everyone. :slight_smile:


I am Pamela Price who works in NJ at Mercer County Community College’s library. Our OER effort is striving to move from an interest to a full-fledged OER program. To do so, it needs leadership to move it forward and I see myself as a person at my institution with OER fire in my belly - so to speak. My participation in this group is to keep me focused on this goal and to learn from those who have been where my institution is on the OER spectrum of engagement, practice and service with a particular interest in its ability to serve in the spirit of DEI.

Welcome Esther, and I just adore the West African welcome, it feels warm.

Thanks for being here for the conference and hope you share more about your work using open education to support people in prisons.

Chào mừng đến với cộng đồng này.

Thanks for visiting and please feel welcome to ask questions or reply to any messages in OEG Connect.

Hi there. I’m from Treaty 8 territory
Treaty 8 Tribal Association - Wikipedia (AKA Fort St. John BC)
I now live in Prince George, which is the unneeded land of the Lheidli T’enneh people. I’m very British myself on both sides, and I regularly visit England. By regularly I mean twice but I dream of fish and chips often…I work at a public institution, the College of New Caledonia. we are growing as in institution and I want to learn from everyone in this group about how to better myself as in instructor and policy writer and also my college as a whole.
I recently tried to rescue a German tourist (long story) and ended up connecting with the people on the land in Alexis creek near here that burned a few years ago. Crazy to hear about that experience from local people who were literally trapped by the forest fires that just inconvenienced me with smoke. The army dropped food for the community to keep them alive while those fires burned. Can’t wait to connect with all of you. Val

Hello and welcome, Val, from my location in Treaty 4 lands a wee bit east of you.

Thanks for sharing your stories and work interests at New Caledonia… please make good use of this space to connect more, Alan.

Nice to meet you Alan.
