THE EDUCATION NOT PRIVATIZATION TOOLKIT

Privatization of online higher education is on the rise. For-profit online education corporations like Academic Partnerships, Kaplan, Wiley, Pearson, and Blackboard contract with public and private nonprofit institutions to provide digital platforms for educational content, recruit students, manage enrollment, facilitate the development of course materials, and more. While the use of digital platforms and online teaching tools can enrich higher education, elements of contracting with for-profit online education corporations can present problems in areas of interest to faculty, particularly academic freedom and shared governance. AAUP and MOAAUP have resources, surveys, and social media shareables to help you learn how you can get involved in making sure that higher education serves the common good, not private profit.

You can find the toolkit here.
