Toward a Learning Society - Gary E. Miller, Here We Are

Over the past few years, our public colleges and universities have made great strides in adopting online technology to extend undergraduate and graduate degree programs to working adults away from campus. This has allowed adults to gain the skills and credentials that they need to adapt to the new working requirements of a maturing global information society. It has also created new revenue streams for universities to support innovation. Now, it is time for public colleges and universities to explore how they can use the same technologies to revitalize their traditional service missions and to foster true lifelong learning. This posting will explore some opportunities for online-based lifelong learning as part of the public university’s social engagement mission.
