Higher Education and Online Learning

Recommended Posts

Hello,

This is my first post. I didn't even realize there was a forum. I have had a question I have been struggling with for a year or two. I have taught in classical schools, I do classical education for our homeschool kids, and I read about education often. My regular job is a theology professor for an online MA program. I find it challenging to connect the things I gained from Classical U, or other resources, to the university level with all the interactions being online. Is there anyone out there that is writing about how to renew higher education (universities) in light of the classical education movement? That is a good place to start. Going a step further, is there anyone that is applying the principles and pedagogical ideas to online instruction? I could not figure out where to post this. Any feedback, from anyone, would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Brandon,

I don't know of anyone who is currently writing about how to renew higher education in light of CCE, but I do know of some institutions of higher learning that are using classical education: New Saint Andrews in Moscow, ID; New College Franklin in Franklin, TN; Templeton Honors College at Eastern University in St. Davids, PA are three that come to mind. You can also check out the Integrated Humanities Program project that took place at the University of Kansas back in the 1970s. Kevin Clark and Ravi Jain interact with it quite a bit in their latest edition of The Liberal Arts Tradition.

You might also try contacting Veritas Press, who spearheaded online classical education for secondary education. They might be able to point you to some resources on higher education.
