Program and meetup: Online education

Independent scholars, please join us! Thursday, September 12, 7:00- 8:30 p.m., Woodbury Room, Jones Library, Amherst.


Matthew Emerson, a Five College Associate and a department chair at Kaplan University, will give a brief presentation about distance education and online higher education. Discussion will follow. Online learning seems to be the wave of the future; what does it imply for independents and for higher education in general?

Matthew Emerson is chair of the Department of Social Sciences, College of General Education, Kaplan University.


Of course, we’ll have time for conviviality afterward.
