Jochen Robes über Bildung, Lernen und Trends

Is Phoenix the Future?

Der Interviewte hat ein Buch geschrieben und zu diesem Zweck einen Kurs an der University of Phoenix unterrichtet, um einmal hinter die Kulissen zu schauen. George Siemens bringt in seinem Kommentar das Phänomen Phoenix (und das Interview) auf den Punkt:
“University of Phoenix enjoys an interesting position – rapid growth, strong revenue, and better branding than many traditional universities. Its model of delivering learning is praised and innovative and responsive… and criticized for lower standards and functioning without academic leaders/stars. For many traditional academics, U of Phoenix is everything that is wrong with education – an image that Phoenix appears to enjoy (the article highlights their combative spirit and self-perception as “anti-establishment”).”
