Long before there was an Internet, Fielding pioneered the concept of a distributed university—a place where adult learners could leverage their professional and academic experience to aspire to doctoral and other graduate degrees, without having to leave their home or place of work.This monograph illustrates adult transformational learning, from alumni describing how evolving into “scholar-practitioners” inspired their life’s work to faculty members recounting how Fielding took shape amid a culture of scholarship and social justice. You’ll also find discussions about the transformative power of adult education, the creation of new scholarly disciplines, and the role of mentoring in learning. Together, these tales provide a sampling of the rich, complex tapestry that is Fielding Graduate University.
