Conjecture, Tension, and Online Learning
Although low cost and flexible access make online learning appealing to administration, the topic provokes considerable tension among faculty. The authors explore why this might be so and outline the University of Washington Tacoma's top-down, bottom-up approach to change. A key piece is the UWT Initiative in Innovative Course Redesign, a competitive fellowship program aimed at creating a new mentor-apprenticeship model for online educators to help them better guide the next generation of leaders, thinkers, and dreamers.
