Terry Anderson, Professor and Canada Research Chair in Distance Education at Athabasca University dropped by tonight. We talked about distance ed, his time ‘back on the land’. We talked about where education might be going… and we talked about athabasca’s new EDD program starting (maybe) next year.. Besides being an all round big wig in education (see link above) Terry is involved in all kinds of educational projects, including an appearance at the upcomming Curverider conference. I had a great time.
