Delft University of Technology
Open education Specialist
Delft, Nederland
It is my mission to ensure that our excellent teachers at the Delft University of Technology have all the room and support they need to use and produce open educational recources (OER). I focus on facilitating Open Textbook publishing. I make sure that prospective authors have access to everything they need to write an Open Textbook. I make sure that their output is published on our digital publication platform for Open Textbooks.
But that's not all! I am also a trainer for academics, teaching the basic principles of Open Science to PhD students and faculty. I am currently working on a Massive Online Open Course that covers the basics of open science, that is scheduled to go live in September 2018.
But wait! There's more. I am also involved in project development for improved findability of OER by users. We are developing a smart search algorythm capable of finding high quality OER easily, to assist teachers that are looking for useful educational materials to enrich their classes.
