LiDA Center – Higher Education Experience
Here is some evidence for the expertise we may provide, based on the extensive experience of our staff in higher education:
- The LiDA Center Director and Associate Directors led the successful launch of online offerings at the Warner School – as documented in the chapter “From 0 to 60: The Case Study of a School of Education’s Successful ‘Online Start-Up’”
- Eric Fredericksen has published extensively on leadership in online higher education
- Raffaella Borasi and Dave Miller have designed a very effective semester-long course to enable participants to design and facilitate online modules, while also helping them clarify the “kind of online teacher they aspire to be” and its implications – as documented in a recent doctoral dissertation (Hafsa, 2019).
