John Thelin, professor in the UK College of Education Department of Educational Policy Studies and Evaluation, has an essay currently featured in Inside Higher Ed, discussing the benefits and challenges associated with online learning in public higher education.
According to Thelin, online education is the latest in a long succession of teaching innovations that are fueled by both technological and social changes.
“In other words, online education is very much part of higher education’s heritage,” he says.
Thelin has been at UK since 1996. In those past 15 years, he has become nationally renowned as UK’s go-to expert for all things related to higher education policies and issues.
