Online, Summer College Courses Among Kasich Budget Options

Gov. John Kasich is being urged to support new technologies and innovative teaching styles in college classrooms across Ohio, to boost student advising and internship opportunities and to extend more college courses into the summers as he writes his next higher education budget. Those were among recommendations brought to Kasich by a group studying ways to improve the quality and value of college education in the state. The project was led by former Ohio State University President Gordon Gee and Chancellor John Carey, aided by the Center for Higher Education Enterprise at Ohio State. The months-long effort included six listening tours and consultation with higher education and business leaders, students, faculty and outside experts. Other recommendations include expanding online competency-based degree programs that recognize real-world skills.
