Chris Glass


I take a social psychological approach to researching issues in American higher education, with an interest in how the presence of others affects educational outcomes such as achievement, motivation, and social development. I research international students, academic work, and publicly engaged scholarship.

    Stanford University used MOOCs as an opportunity to create a supportive environment for faculty to explore, create, and express themselves in new ways through open and digital education. Following its early support for MOOCs, Stanford built soft infrastructure to incubate good ideas and allow courses to evolve over time.
