A Bill of Rights and Principles for Learning in the Digital Age

With the large increase in online learning in recent years, more and more students are reaping its benefits as well as facing its challenges. In response, a group of scholars recently joined together to compose the “Bill of Rights and Principles for Learning in the Digital Age.” Here is an introduction from the authors:

On December 14, 2012, a group of 12 assembled in Palo Alto for a raucous discussion of online education. Hybrid Pedagogy contributors Sean Michael Morris and Jesse Stommel gathered together with folks from a diverse array of disciplines and backgrounds, representing STEM fields, the humanities, schools of education, corporations, non-profits, ivies, community colleges, and small liberal arts colleges. Among us were adjuncts, CEOs, a graduate student, several digital humanists, and two outspoken educational technology journalists. As a group, we’d chaired online programs, designed MOOCs, dropped out of MOOCs, and the term “MOOC” was even coined in one of our living rooms. The goal of the summit was to open a broader conversation about online learning and the future of higher education.
