Online learning next topic in Huddle with the Faculty series

October 29, 2015

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Want to know what really goes into online learning? Craig Weidemann, Penn State's vice president for outreach and vice provost for online education, will attempt to remove the preconceived notions about online education and lead a discussion titled "The Five Myths of Online Learning" in the next installment of the Huddle with the Faculty series, set for Saturday, Oct. 31, at the Nittany Lion Inn. 

U.S. News and World Report recently recognized the 15-year-old Penn State World Campus as having the No. 1 online bachelor program in the country. The World Campus now has more than 16,000 students worldwide pursuing one of more than 125 online degrees and certificates. While the World Campus shares the same rigor, quality, and admission requirements as traditional Penn State programs, there remain many questions and myths regarding the quality and future of online programs. 

In his roles Weidemann provides leadership for the University's external outreach, engaged scholarship and online education initiatives. 

The 24th annual Huddle with the Faculty series takes place every Saturday morning on home football weekends. Admission is free and open to the public, with free parking available in the Nittany Parking Deck. Complimentary breakfast refreshments will be served at 8:30 a.m., and the presentation will begin at 9 a.m. in The Nittany Lion Inn.

Huddle with the Faculty is presented by the Penn State Alumni Association and sponsored by The Village at Penn State with support from The Nittany Lion Inn and Penn State Press.
