About Ben Baab

Ben Baab

During my career, I played a variety of roles in higher education - from my first jobs teaching and managing computer facilities to CIO-level leadership, planning, and policy implementation. These duties have been enhanced by my educational background: Ed.D. in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of San Francisco, M.A. in Mathematics from UC Berkeley, and B.A. in Mathematics from San Francisco State University; plus years of on-the-job and self-directed learning activities.

I retired from teaching in 2016. My instructional activities included courses in Research Methods, Statistics, and Educational Technology courses at USF and Argosy University. I continue to pursue consulting and research interests. My current research activity includes the use of free, open-source software (FOSS) in schools and the philosophy of FOSS in general.
