“Open education means not only removing one of the barriers to access higher education, but removing the walls to knowledge, both in its creation and distribution,” Cailyn said. “I got involved in social change as a student and have seen firsthand the impact they can have. Students can change the world for the better, and we should support them in doing so.”
Welcoming Cailyn Nagle as OER Program Manager
Cailyn Nagle has joined the Michelson 20MM Foundation as the Open Education Resources (OER) Program Manager. In their new role, Cailyn will be building on the foundation’s decade-long work to remove the high cost of course materials as a barrier students face in accessing higher education.
While receiving their bachelors degree in anthropology and archaeology from the University of Georgia, she first got involved in social change through the Occupy movement in Atlanta and then through local issues in Athens. After graduating, she worked on field campaigns ranging from nuclear disarmament to electoral races, but sought to find their way to deeper organizing. That led her to working as a campus organizer with the Student PIRGs in Southern California.
