Synopsis: An update to a provocative manifesto intended to serve as a platform for debate and as a resource and inspiration for those teaching in online environments.

In 2011, a group of scholars associated with the Digital Education Centre at the University of Edinburgh released "A Manifesto for Teaching Online," a series of provocative statements intended to articulate their pedagogical philosophy. In the original manifesto and a 2016 update, the authors counter both the "impoverished" vision of education being advanced by corporate and governmental edtech and higher education's traditional view of online students and teachers as second-class citizens. The two versions of the manifesto were much discussed, shared, and debated. In this book, the authors have expanded the text of the 2016 manifesto, revealing the sources and larger arguments behind the abbreviated provocations.
