Research and the Knowledge Frontier in an Online Environment
The theme of the conference “Research and the Knowledge Frontier in an Online Environment” exemplifies the mission and the goals of Athabasca University as a leader in open and distance education. This conference will not only highlight the work being done by our graduate students using the latest in distance technology as a tool to facilitate interactive discourse, but will also enable students and faculty to discuss research in a traditional ‘in person’ format.
Knowledge is rapidly expanding. What lies in our future? How will research be conducted? How will it be disseminated? How will it be applied to improve society? This conference will provide a forum for students and faculty to engage in these discussions.
