Education & Library Consultant
I'm interested in realizing the potential of librarians to advance STEM literacy and global literacy in their communities. These literacies are expressed together when groups of people have the knowledge, understandings, skills, dispositions, and behaviors to competently make decisions and act on local, regional and global issues together.
I believe libraries will play a key role in supporting the growth of interconnected solutions, not only by increasing technology-enabled access to needed resources/information, but also as locally-based institutions that provide contextualized knowledge and skills for place-based and real world inquiry for all.
For the past ten years, my work has focused on the development and best use of high-value digital libraries for advancing open knowledge society and accessibility to open educational resources (OER) around the globe.
