Knowledge, Learning, Community

The authors of this study spoke to leaders from Canadian educational institutions that launched distance and online learning initiatives over fifteen years (2002-2017) in an effort to find common experiences. Not surprisingly, the leaders said visionary leadership was critically important. "While  traditional  models  of  teaching  and  learning have  endured," they write, "the  continued  growth  of  online  learning  is  inevitable." What's not clear to me is whether this growth will continue inside, or outside, academic institutions. This paper is a preprint and was discussed at a CNIE session today; I'm not sure whether ti will be permanently open so grab a copy while you can.
