Professor Josie A Fraser
Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Acting)
Josie joined the Open University in March 2017, but describes her interest in the Open University and it’s mission as ‘long term’ after being a tutor on an OU MSc course back in the early 2000s, an experience that influenced her teaching for many years. Josie was previously Executive Dean of the Faculty of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics before taking up the DVC role from 1st January 2019.
In previous roles, and now at the Open University, Josie promotes initiatives to broaden access to STEM subjects for under-represented groups, and continues her long-standing interest in technology-enhanced learning.
