In 2022, Andrea will complete the trilogy by publishing a third OER, "Student Anthology: Consumer Behaviour during Pandemic Times", which contains student-authored stories about pandemic consumer experiences.Andrea engages in open pedagogy practices with her students by supporting their efforts in creating renewable & publishable work to supply the public domain with under-represented voices and examples in business. In 2020, Andrea's 4th year marketing course created an OER, "An Open Guide to IMC",  to support small businesses, non-profits, and advocates, engage in marketing campaign work. That same year, Andrea was a BC Campus Grant Recipient and Fellow in KPU’s SDG Open Pedagogy Fellowship program. Since 2019, Andrea has been an active participant in the Open Education for a Better World mentoring program - first as a developer and now as a mentor.
