Hi, my name is Wayne Mackintosh and I'm the founder of WikiEducator -- the most rewarding project of my career! My faith in education is restored because educators are returning to the core values of sharing knowledge freely. I am a Wikiambassador and do my best to promote WikiEducator among my friends around the world.
Currently I'm the founding Director of the OER Foundation and the International Centre for Open Education based at Otago Polytechnic, New Zealand. I also serve as a member of the Board of Directors of the OER Foundation. I was previously Education Specialist for eLearning and ICT Policy at the Commonwealth of Learning based in Vancouver, and before that Associate Professor and founding director of the Centre for Flexible and Distance Learning (CFDL) at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. I've had the privilege of working and living in three different regions of the Commonwealth, namely Africa (South Africa), the Pacific (New Zealand) and North America (Canada). Static corporate websites with their professional bios etc. are so 1990's but if you need a bio for any presentations or references, feel free to use this more formal version or expand the formal biography window below.
