|Dear CIDER Member,We invite you to the next presentation in our series of free online CIDER sessions. This session is the latest in our ongoing K-12 State of the Nation series with Michael Barbour of Wayne State University.Title: State of the Nation 2012: K-12 online learning in Canada
Over the past two decades, there has been little government, foundation, or private funding for the development of or research into K-12 online learning in Canada. Moreover, there has been little activity in Canadian higher education towards the research of K-12 online learning. Both of which have limited the focus and scope of education research into K-12 online learning. As such, K-12 online learning has continued to develop across Canada quietly, and with little dissemination outside of the country and between individual provinces.
Over the past five years, the “State of the Nation: K-12 Online Learning in Canada” study has attempted to address this gap by examining of the regulation and activity of K-12 distance education in Canada. In this ongoing series, Dr. Barbour returns to CIDER with this year’s State of the Nation. View the full study at:
