Greetings Colleagues, Friends and Family:


Please forgive cross-postings…


I am delighted to announce I have accepted the position of “Director of Global Learning” @ Creative Commons (job details below).  CC posted the news this morning.


While I am sad leaving the Washington State Board for Community & Technical Colleges (it has been the best job of my career!), I have an intense passion for open education resources and open policy… and this is an opportunity to work those issues on a global scale.  I believe, as the marginal cost of sharing digital content approaches $0, we have a collective obligation to help learners everywhere access a quality, affordable education.

Creative Commons is about realizing the full potential of the Internet — universal access to research and education, full participation in culture, and driving a new era of development, growth, and productivity.

I think it will be a good fit ;)
