Several articles relevant to "Inside Digital Learning" readers appeared in Inside Higher Ed this week:

  • The nation's largest regional accreditor, the Higher Learning Commission, published a set of papers this week from a think tank it convened to address important issues in accreditation. Among the papers was one exploring the role of accreditation in an era of "unbundling" of the curriculum and shared services in higher education.
  • A group of more than 600 gym teachers in Quebec is concerned about an online physical education program that is being offered by nine technical colleges, the CBC reported. The gym teachers object to the fact that no face-to-face meetings with advisers are required and say the online format undercuts the purpose of gym classes.
  • An essay by a former community college president, Jim Jacobs, examined what he called the "shadow-college programs" many two-year institutions have created to serve companies and their prospective employers, and urges the institutions to strengthen the connections between those noncredit programs and their traditional for-credit curriculums.
