The Paradoxes of Online Academic Work


Communication Education Volume 50, Number 3, ISSN 0363-4523


Discusses paradoxes of online teaching and scholarship: for faculty, more freedom equal less freedom; for teaching, more work is perceived as less work; for learning, more accessibility leads to less human touch; and for administrators, desire for less spending causes more spending. Suggests that educators must find their own unique answers to the paradoxical questions of online academic work. (SG)
