Lisa Petrides

Lisa Petrides, Ph.D., is CEO and Founder of the education nonprofit, the Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education (ISKME). As a scholar and international open educational resources (OER) expert, she leads research, policy, and practice to support the field of open education, with the goal to make learning and knowledge-sharing participatory, equitable, and open.

Her work also includes the development of ISKME's award winning OER Commons, a digital public library of open educational resources and collaboration platform that facilitates the discovery and improvement of high-quality digital resources that are free, openly licensed, and available for a diverse range of learners.

A former faculty member in the Department of Organizational Leadership at Columbia University, Teachers College, Petrides has advised and led development efforts that have enabled schools, colleges, universities, ministries of education, and the organizations that support them to expand their capacity to use data and information, and create inclusive knowledge-driven environments focused on teaching and learning. Petrides received an MBA from Sonoma State University, and a Ph.D. in Education Policy from Stanford University.

In November 2020, Petrides was elected as a Trustee of the San Mateo County Community College District Board, a three-college district serving over 25,000 students in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lisa is a Senior Fellow of the American Leadership Forum of Silicon Valley, and a Board member of the Palo Alto nonprofit Kafenia Peace Collective.
