Hi! I’m Leah- an instructional designer in Buffalo, NY who is working on her Ph.D. I consider myself a ‘DIY learning researcher’ and love to discuss DIY and informal learning (such as MOOCs) and alternative forms of credit (such as Open Badges). When I’m not thinking about the future of higher education, you can find me buried in school work or helping to put on TEDxBuffalo.
