“When distance learning is responsive to social and cultural demands, when we acknowledge that everything we create has socio-cultural implications, we realize we are alchemists, and well-intentioned alchemists can do good things. But they also have the capacity for doing great harm. The most mundane ideas in one culture can become a dangerous virus in another. So we find ourselves making moral and ethical, not just practical, decisions when we design and deliver distance education.”
-Dr. Richard Sweir, 2020
