Leading the eLearning Transformation of Higher Education: Leadership Strategies for the Next Generation

The second edition historically contextualizes eLearning and provides needed attention to issues of diversity and equity. The majority of the book was written prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, yet the authors eerily speak to issues that have only intensified as a result of the dramatic pivot to emergency remote teaching caused by the closure of universities worldwide in efforts to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. A statement by Karen Swan sums up the gravity of the current state of academia and its modus apparatus: “[I]t isn’t clear that higher education will survive in its current form” (p. 293)…. An assertion by Raymond Schroeder further questions the centralized authority of institutions of higher education to not only quantify learning but also to keep track of what is learned.
