Online Discussion For-profit, Distance-Education Institutions

December 11, 2000

Thursday, December 14 at 1 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time

The discussion is based on a profile in the new issue of The Chronicle of Sally Silberman, an instructor at New York University’s new, online for-profit subsidiary. Ms. Silberman, who will respond to questions and comments in the chat, is an example of a new kind of academic in higher education — hired for her business savvy and practical experience, not for academic degrees.

Advance questions and comments are encouraged.
