Peter Smith, UMUC’s Orkand Chair, Is Rethinking Higher Education

A funny thing happened on the way to Peter Smith’s transition to full retirement. Since this spring, when University of Maryland University College (UMUC) named him Orkand Chair, as well as Professor of Innovative Practices in Higher Education, Smith has, in his words, re-calibrated.

“Re-energized and engaged,” the educator and writer has resumed his blog Rethinking Higher Education and has begun a new blog series: A New Universe of Learning: Personalized Learning in the Digital Age.  Read his latest posts,  Personal Learning: Part I and Personal Learning: Part II.
