What prompted you to become involved in OER?

I wanted to contribute to life-long learning for all.

A lot of instructors are hesitant about OER. Do you share those hesitations? How do you address them?

I do not. I am limited by time.

Can other instructors interested in OER reach out to you?

Yes, at

University of Waterloo
