Hi! I'm Nicole Allen, Director of Open Education for SPARC. I've devoted my career to advocating for open education to benefit students — starting back when I was an undergraduate student myself frustrated with expensive textbooks in the information-rich world we live in. My expertise is in grassroots organizing, advocacy, and policy, and my proudest accomplishments include organizing large-scale national campaigns to highlight textbook costs and helping to pass OER-friendly policies at the state, national and international level. At SPARC, I have the privilege of working with a broad community of practice of librarians to advance OER on campus, and also lead our open education policy work. I'm also one of the organizers of OpenCon, which is the conference and community to empower the next generation to advance openness in research and education.
