Concurrent Session 7
As institutions have evolved with online learning, Presidents and Provosts have established a leadership position to guide their efforts in this area.

***This session is an extended presentation of the research introduced by Dr. Fredericksen during his Research Highlights & Trends presentation at 11:15am on Thursday***
Online learning in U.S. higher education continues to grow dramatically. The most recent estimates indicate that about 30% of all students enroll in at least one online course. As institutions have evolved with this important type of academic offering, presidents and provosts have frequently established a leadership position to coordinate and direct their efforts in this area. But what do we know about the leaders who have been charged with managing this academic transformation? This systematic study, a first of its kind, will shed light on the leadership that is guiding this new teaching and learning environment. As a result of this presentation, attendees can expect to understand the current state of leadership for online learning, compare and contrast the leadership for online learning at your institution with the national landscape, and analyze priorities and strategies for higher ed online learning in the context of your institution
