I don’t usually advertise job openings (where would I stop?) but this one is very interesting. Memorial has always been a Canadian leader in distance education, and has also ‘exported’ some great distance educators to the rest of the world. This would be a great opening for a young, ambitious distance educator who would like to make a difference in post-secondary education.
