Traditional learning has changed and so too the role of an educator needs to evolve and change.
Traditional college instruction is part of a well-established tradition that has remained fairly unchanged over time. Becoming an instructor in this environment has meant conformity to teaching standards that have also remained mostly unchanged. A college professor is associated with someone who is a subject matter expert, likely to achieve a position with tenure, and have dual roles as an instructor and researcher. It is expected that they will be a published author of scholarly journal articles that have been peer-reviewed and contributed knowledge to their field.
