The Internet and Higher Education

Achieving Global Reach

The purpose of this book is to increase understanding of the major theories, issues, challenges, and solutions related to online distance education. It balances practical advice with a description of the theoretical and research-based underpinnings for the culturally-responsive strategies presented. An important integrating theme is the impact of globalization and internationalization on all aspects of distance education. Consequently, the book examines the implications of global reach and cross-border education and promotes the integration of global learning in academic programs.

Distance education administrators and faculty members at the university level, graduate students enrolled in higher education administration and teaching programs, and individuals enrolled in professional development courses in online course design and instruction
