Fiona Hollands is the Associate Director and Senior Researcher at the Center for Benefit-Cost Studies of Education at Teachers College, Columbia University. Over the past 20 years, she has conducted research and evaluation on how technology impacts teaching and learning. Recent studies focused on MOOCs, on automated detectors of affect and engagement, on how decisions about acquiring education technology are made in higher education, and on the costs and benefits to learners of earning alternative credentials such as MicroMasters. She is the author of “MOOCs: Expectations and Reality,” “MOOCs in Higher Education: Institutional Goals and Paths Forward,” and “EdTech Decision-making in Higher Education.”

In her keynote, Dr. Hollands will present her most recent research findings on MOOC's and online learning initiatives, placing it in the historical context of MOOC trajectory. She will look back at past predictions about MOOCs that turned out to be right - and wrong - with possible explanations and suggestions for future developments and predictions for where MOOCs will go in 2025.
