Courageous Learning: Finding a New Path through Higher Education  
Feb. 3, 2014
Author:  John Ebersole, with William Patrick
Category:  Non-fiction: General/Other
Description:  Approximately 80% of those who need to start or finish a college degree are over 25 years old, yet most institutions of higher education in the United States treat them as an afterthought. Courageous Learning provides a clear, comprehensive assessment of the adult, online, higher ed landscape. It includes: profiles of long-established, non-profit, online institutions; profiles of inspirational adult students; definitions of terms such as "credit by exam" and "credit by assessment," as well as interviews with higher ed reformers, including Mark Milliron, Martha Kanter, Margaret Spellings, Louis Soares, and others. A must-have resource for educators who recognize the importance of attracting and supporting non-traditional students.
Rights available:  All translation territories.
Rights already sold:  N/A
Other information:  Dr. Ebersole is president of Excelsior College, one of America's oldest and largest providers of distance education. He is also a member of the American Council on Education's Commission on Lifelong Learning, and blogs for Forbes and The Huffington Post.
