About Alan Webb
Alan Webb is a founding member of and participant in the Open Master’s Program, which helps self-directed learners create a transformative and peer-reviewed higher education in small groups that give them support and accountability. He organizes experimental peer-led courses online with P2PU and face-to-face with Citizen Circles, a format of peer-led courses where everyone contributes to teaching instead of one dedicated instructor.

As a facilitator and education designer for hire, Alan has designed curriculum and facilitated programs with leading-edge education projects like UnSchool Adventures, Mycelium School, and work with partners like Hub DC, de universiteit, and Ashoka U. Webb works to build, connect, and grow the open education ecosystem through projects like Educate 20/20 and through speaking and writing on the future of education.

Alan previously worked as a minimalist strategy consultant for startup companies and studied economics and psychology at the University of Virginia, where he launched theCourseForum.com with Jeff Bordogna, which is now the main course evaluation website at UVA.
