REVIEW: Harmonizing Global Education-From Genghis Khan To Facebook
Jon Baggaley

Reviewed By Dr. Wolfram Laaser

Jon Baggaley’s book is an exiting and profound piece of academic literature. It also includes personal anecdotes and flash backs about topics he came across during his long academic career as professor at Athabasca University, Concordia University and Memorial University of New Foundland. But Jon Baggeley is not only a gifted writer and researcher but also actor and therefore very much related to culture and arts. All this forms the ingredients of his book which “focusses on literature not usually associated with the field of Open and Flexible Learning, but offers a foundation for today´s open and distance-based approaches to global education”(Preface of his book).
