Have you used a learning material from MERLOT in your teaching?
Describe your role in education
I began my career as Director and Head of Knowledge Engineering with the Centre for Development of Instructional Technology (CENDIT) and Satellite Instructional Television Experiment (SITE). In the 70s and 80s a significant part of my work was with the CDS/ISIS and MINISIS bibliographic information systems with ILO, Unesco and International Development Research Centre (IDRC). ISIS was perhaps one of the forerunners of the open source movement with code sharing, collaborative code development and deployment across the world. Later I worked Jim Spohrer Educational Object Economy (EOE) with Apple's Advanced Technology Group which in some ways led to MERLOT. Now I am involved in bringing together a OERC (Open Education Resources for Cancer) Consortium as a joint initiative of iBharti Foundation and the International Network for Cancer Treatment and Research (INCTR).
Sorry that I took a while to reply to your invitation to join OER-Cancer. Yes, I am really quite interested in building this community. I teach Cancer Pharmacology to various professional and graduate student groups, and I think that I am well positioned to have some impact here.
