Hi Everyone! I am a Coordinator of Spanish at Athabasca University / Ed.D. student at Athabasca University focused on OERs and mobile learning.
A couple of years ago, I was fortunate enough to receive a Campus Alberta Open Educational Resources Initiative development grant to create an on-line textbook for Spanish language instruction. The project is now a vibrant community of academics, graduate and undergraduate students working towards the completion of the 2nd half of the textbook to complete the full first year curriculum. This experience focus my interests and pointed me in the direction of further studies to become a better advocate for OERs on a larger scale.
I look forward to learning and sharing in the growing world of open education.
