Openbaar profiel Leigh-Anne Perryman
I am a Research Associate with The Open University's OER Research Hub. My current research interests include the use of Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Educational Practices (OEP) within the voluntary and community sector and the application of OEP beyond higher education more generally. More broadly, my research is grounded in a commitment to social and educational inclusion - a value base that is entirely compatible with my focus on OER and OEP.
I hold a bachelor’s degree in Humanities with Art History, a master’s degree in Researching Inclusive Education and a PhD in Inclusive Arts Education, awarded by The Open University, UK. My doctoral thesis explored adults’ cognitive and affective responses to contemporary art and the implications for arts pedagogy, resulting in the development of a multi-emotion appraisal theory-based model of aesthetic perception and visual arts pedagogy, accessible here. I am a Fellow of the UK’s Higher Education Academy and of the Institute for Learning. I have been a lecturer for The Open University for 12 years, where I have also been involved in authoring module materials and designing online courses.
