The Open Education Sociology Dictionary (OESD) is seeking contributors and peer reviewers from all fields of the social sciences. Academics in all stages of their careers who want to share their knowledge are cordially invited to participate. From late-career academics who have a wealth of experience in learning and teaching to early-career academics seeking to build their professional profile.
The OESD is a continually updated online dictionary and proudly part of the Open Educational Resources movement. The overall intention of the project is to collect, curate, and freely distribute sociological knowledge specifically, and social science knowledge in general. This resource is accessed by students, teachers, and curious individuals worldwide.
Bell teaches both sociology and education classes at the University of Wollongong and the University of Sydney.
