Open Education Leadership Program 2020-2021

Tiffany MacLennan

Open Education Leadership Fellow


Tiffany MacLennan is a recent graduate of St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, NS and has been a strong advocate for OER adoption in the Maritime Provinces of Canada. Through her time as the Vice President Academic for the StFX Students’ Union, a Senator for the StFX Senate, and Governor for the StFX Board of Governors, Tiffany continuously brought OERs to the table as an option to make higher education more accessible, affordable and of the highest possible quality. Tiffany is now a Research Fellow and Strategist for the Maple League of Universities, a consortium consisting of Acadia, Bishop’s, Mount Allison, and St. Francis Xavier University. Through the SPARC Open Education Leadership program, Tiffany hopes to learn more about the implementation of OER initiatives to help bring OER use as a common practice at the four Maple League universities. Tiffany is also excited to work as one of the youngest members of this year’s cohort and bringing a students’ perspective to the conversation.
