Justin Reich is joined by Mitchell Stevens, a sociologist of education at Stanford University to discuss the history and current relationship between online learning and higher education, and how COVID has altered that relationship.“I do think this provides a moment of true uncertainty about the future, because essentially every college and university overnight had to reconceive what quality instruction would look and feel like at their institutions. It creates an openness to forward change that I honestly believe we cannot fully predict. It will depend, for example, on how American students and those who pay tuition feel about the value proposition of what they've experienced and the extent to which the utilities and advantages that they experience online are sufficiently satisfying, that they're willing to continue a conversation about online or hybrid delivery. I do believe this is the context in which how students and their families respond to these new environments will be definitive in how the fate of the sector unfolds.” - Mitchell StevensIn this episode we’ll talk about:What is higher education?How online learning fits in with higher educationThe historical relationshipHow the pandemic changed the attitude towards online learningWhy isn’t higher education turning towards expensive, already produced online courses?No mandate and no incentive to measure learningThe influx of K-12 homeschoolingEducational businesses, how they stand between home and school.
