What’s of interest? Statement on Online Education | AAUP

Tell me more!

In the 1999 statement, the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) established principles with regard to what was then known as “distance education.” Despite significant technological changes in the last twenty-five years, these basic principles continue to apply:

  1. the use of new technologies in teaching should be for the purpose of advancing the basic functions of colleges and universities to preserve, augment, and transmit knowledge and to foster the abilities of students to learn and

  2. as with all other curricular matters, the faculty should have primary responsibility for determining the policies and practices of the institution with regard to online education.

Note as well the lower section “III. Intellectual Property in Online Education and Open Educational Resources”
