  • When will lifelong learning come of age?

    Times Higher Education - 08/08/2019

    Joseph Aoun, the president of Boston’s Northeastern University, agrees that purely online study is not for everyone. Northeastern’s answer is to open branch campuses around the US and the world – from Silicon Valley to Canada and soon the UK – which enable online learners to interact in person and facilitate “experiential learning”, often enhanced by work placements. One new Northeastern programme, for instance, allows graduates from the arts or humanities to do an internship in the tech industry, leading to a master’s in computer science.
