A National Study of Leadership for Online Learning in Two-Year Schools in U.S. Higher Ed

Wednesday, January 31 | 9:30AM–10:15AM CT | Galerie 6, Second Floor
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
Online learning is a vital part of U.S. higher education. Following the national study of online learning leaders at U.S. universities in 2016, this session will report on a study complementing that research with a focus on leadership at two-year schools. The importance of this research is evident when considering the significant role of community colleges in online education. What do we know about the leaders at these two-year schools? Are there differences or similarities with leaders at universities? This systematic study will help us understand the leadership in two-year schools that is guiding this innovative learning environment.

Outcomes: Explore the current state of leadership for online learning in U.S. higher ed * Compare and contrast the leadership for online learning at your institution to the national landscape * Analyze priorities and strategies for online learning in higher ed and consider them in the context of your college or university
