The Pros and Cons of Online Learning in Higher Education also addresses the impact of COVID-19 and the sudden shift to distance learning methods. The pandemic has drastically changed the landscape of college-level education, making it safer and simpler to learn from home without the need to get dressed, drive, and sit in a physical classroom. Dr. Turner’s work can help young people make an informed decision about whether to return to an in-person environment after the pandemic is over.

While navigating non-traditional types of learning may seem daunting, Dr. Turner unpacks the choice facing prospective students with simple, accessible language.
