“We would like to thank Lumina Foundation and Walmart for co-sponsoring to make this book Open Access, freely available to anyone interested in it. We are deeply appreciative for their generosity and support. In addition, Florida Gulf Coast University provided funding for Open Access of Chapter 14, which was written by a team from their institution. We are also so grateful for support from the UW Madison Sandra Rosenbaum School of Social Work, and especially David Barger, who worked hard behind the scenes to help make this book Open Access,” says the book’s editors, Prof. Aaron Brower and Prof. Ryan Specht-Boardman of the University of Wisconsin Extended Campus.

New Models of Higher Education: Unbundled, Rebundled, Customized, and DIY. explores the practical ways in which institutions of higher education, education technology companies, and workplaces can better respond to, and enable, new clever and productive approaches to lifelong learning.
