Director of Library Services
The Dalles, OR.
I have been a musician, a cook, a baker, a bookseller, and a bookstore owner; all of these professions laid the foundation for teamwork, community building, and outreach. Now, as the Library Director at Columbia Gorge Community College (CGCC), I'm at the center of change brought about by the emergence of the OER movement. In collaboration with faculty, staff, and administration, I've help CGCC build and implement an OER pilot program that involves every aspect of the campus community. Let's talk about OER implementation - what worked, what didn't, and let's find doable strategies to help in ongoing efforts.
