Nature and fairness: When worlds collide 2013

Professor Lovett, who holds Leeds’ Leadership Chair of Global Challenges, said:

“I’m new to online education and the quantity and quality of

debate among the participants was really excellent. It was a

privilege being in the MOOC with everyone.

“It felt like being in a room of friends – the range of opinions was

fascinating, and the discussion has been polite and informative.”
