Equilibrio en la Paradoja: Ofrecer una Educación Lasaliana Transformadora On Line dentro de una Cultura Mercantil

Matthew Nowakowski, Rachel McGee


La educación superior se enfrenta a las crecientes expectativas de la educación transaccional: programas de rendimiento rápido, educación para el empleo, cursos técnicos, calificaciones extremadas, etc. En este entorno, ¿cómo podrán los Educadores Lasalianos equilibrar el deseo de proporcionar una educación transformadora con las demandas de los estudiantes para una educación transaccional? Este artículo examina la mercantilización de la educación, las raíces transformadoras lasalianas y el potencial de la educación en línea para ampliar el acceso a las comunidades de aprendizaje lasalianas transformadoras.

Palabras clave

Educación superior; mercantilización en educación; educación lasaliana; educación transformadora; comunidad de investigación; comunidades de aprendizaje en línea
