A post on Inside Higher Education today discusses faculty’s continued reservations to teaching online. The author, Robert Ubell, shares several studies that examine professors’ resistance to online education and how they view virtual learning environments as being inferior. As the vice dean for online learning at New York University’s Tandon School for Engineering, Ubell is a proponent of online learning. In his role, however, he also recognizes some challenges that faculty face when teaching online.
