Joining Dr. Shean on the panel will be Nick White, director of competency based learning solutions for Capella University, and Sarah Riddlebarger, vice president of solutions and services at Ed Map.
"It is an honor to be selected as an OLC panelist and speak on the role of online learning within higher education," said Dr. Shean.
