  2019 Open Education Symposium Keynote by Dr. MJ Bishop  
(Special Event)

Dr. MJ Bishop is Associate Vice-Chancellor and Director of the Kirwan Center for Academic Innovation at the University System of Maryland. The Center conducts research on best practices, disseminates findings, offers professional development opportunities for institutional faculty and administrators, and supports the 14 public institutions that are part of the system as they continue to expand innovative academic practices.

Dr. Bishop will discuss the role, future, and promise of Open Educational Resources (OER) in advancing the work of institutions of higher education, and in facilitating institutional transformation and change.

Prior to coming to USM, Dr. Bishop was Associate Professor and Director of the Lehigh University College of Education's Teaching, Learning, and Technology Program where, in addition to being responsible for the institution's graduate programs in instructional technology, she also played a leadership role in guiding the general and special education teacher preparation programs through a curricular overhaul to address new Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) guidelines for teacher certification.

Dr. Bishop's research interests include exploring how various instructional media and delivery systems might be designed and used more effectively to improve learning and teaching. MJ holds a doctorate in instructional design and development from Lehigh, a master's in English from Millersville University and a bachelor's in political science and English from Lebanon Valley College.
This event is part of the Open Education Symposium at Virginia Tech.
