Conflicted: Faculty and Online Education, 2012
A new study from Inside Higher Ed and the Babson Survey Research Group
Tuesday, July 10, 1 p.m. EDT
Faculty members are far less excited by, and more fearful of, the recent growth of online education than are academic technology administrators. But professors are hardly the luddites many still assume them to be, and their estimation of online education quality stands to rise as the technology improves and more professors get firsthand experience with the medium.
Those are among the findings of “Conflicted: Faculty and Online Education, 2012,” a study conducted by Inside Higher Ed and the Babson Survey Research Group. On Tuesday, July 10 at 1 p.m. EDT, Inside Higher Ed editor Scott Jaschik will discuss the findings with Joshua Kim, director of learning and technology, Master of Health Care Delivery Science program, Dartmouth College, and blogger at Inside Higher Ed; Steve Kolowich, technology reporter at Inside Higher Ed; and Jeff Seaman, co-director, Babson Survey Research Group.
“Conflicted: Faculty and Online Education, 2012” was made possible in part by the generous financial support of CourseSmart, Hobsons, Pearson and Sonic Foundry. Your registration information will be shared with these companies.
We hope you can participate in this important discussion.
