I am very happy to announce that Peer 2 Peer University has appointed
eight amazing open education innovators to its board of directors.
“As a board member and long-time champion of P2PU, I’ve been delighted
to see it grow from a base of passionate volunteers into a significant
grassroots community of peer learners. P2PU uses social software and
open educational resources to radically reshape online learning in
ways that promise to disrupt the higher education environment. Soon,
P2PU will be able to recognize the achievements of its learners with
certification opportunities.” – Cathy Casserly, CEO Creative Commons -
P2PU is fortunate to be guided and advised by a visionary and
all-around butt-kicking board. The P2PU board includes my four
co-founders Delia Browne, Stian Haklev, Neeru Paharia, and Joel
Thierstein. And we are absolutely delighted to welcome four
outstanding individuals to join them and help P2PU deliver on its
potential: Ahrash Bissell, Program Manager, MITE; Cathy Casserly, CEO
of Creative Commons; Nadeem Shabir, Head of Development at Talis
Education; and Mark Surman, Executive Director of the Mozilla
Foundation. I am not joining the board, but will be working for these
guys as Executive Director of P2PU.
Together these eight incredible people will help us change the world.
