Lisa Petrides, Ph.D. is founder and CEO of ISKME, a global nonprofit dedicated to democratizing access to education and whose work inspires and supports educators to adopt Open Education through the practice of collaboration, organizational change, and continuous improvement. Petrides is a scholar and international open educational resources (OER) expert who has helped lead the design of tools and strategies to create and support the field of OER.
Her work also includes the development of ISKME’s award winning OER Commons, a digital public library of open educational resources and collaboration platform that facilitates the discovery and improvement of high-quality digital resources that are free, openly licensed, and available for a diverse range of learners. ISKME also convenes an international event dedicated to catalyzing education innovation, Big Ideas Fest.
A former professor in the Department of Organizational Leadership at Columbia University, Teachers College, Petrides has advised and led development efforts that have enabled schools, colleges, universities, ministries of education, and the organizations that support them to expand their capacity to use data and information, and create inclusive knowledge-driven environments focused on teaching and learning. Petrides received an MBA from Sonoma State University, and a Ph.D. in Education Policy from Stanford University.
A digital library of open educational resources is one component of a broader approach to open education. Within OER Commons, not only are a vast array of digital resources available to users from around the world, but users also have access to the necessary tools and workflows to support the adaptation and personalization of resources. Through the collaborative and open process, educators are able to engage more deeply and collaborate across traditional boundaries, bringing open education pedagogy to the forefront.
