The first Kelloggiality will focus on: Distance learning and the university experience

It brings together two speakers: Jeremy Knox is a Kellogg Fellow and Professor of Digital Education. He was involved in writing the Edinburgh Manifesto for Teaching Online. Its principles include ‘Online can be the privileged mode’, ‘Distance is a positive principle, not a deficit’ and ‘Place is differently, not less, important online’.
