Speaking Personally--With Russ Poulin
Bentley, Kelvin
American Journal of Distance Education, v30 n3 p203-207 2016
Russ Poulin is director of policy and analysis for Western Cooperative for Educational Telecommunications (WCET), the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) Cooperative for Educational Technologies. He has been an outspoken advocate of treating distance education fairly in state and federal regulations. In recent years, he has researched and proposed improvements to distance education's role in federal aid processes, state authorization, teacher preparation, regular and substantive interaction, and other regulations. Kelvin Bentley currently serves the Tarrant County College District in Fort Worth, Texas, as the vice president of academic affairs for the district's Tarrant County College District Connect Campus, which oversees all online learning courses and programs and a cohort-based Weekend College. Kelvin has experience leading online learning initiatives for two- and four-year institutions, has served as a Fulbright Specialist in distance education as recently as 2010, and serves on the WCET Steering Committee representing two-year colleges. In this brief interview, Kelvin Bentley asks Russ Poulin to share a little bit of background on WCET, his past work, and his thoughts on distance education.
