“It is difficult to capture in a few words just how dynamic, progressive and brilliant Rolin is. His work constantly pushes at and cracks open boundaries of discussions about pedagogy, open education and scholarship. His ideas have deeply influenced my own work and that of countless others.

Rajiv Jhangiani, Special Advisor to the Provost on Open Education, Kwantlen Polytechnic University

We provided Rolin with a big picture outline, and he delivered a comprehensive set of lessons and activities geared towards cultivating civic engagement and leadership skills. We were especially impressed with his thoughtful approach to program planning and his abilities as a collaborator.

Anthony Pennay, Director of the Walter & Leonore Annenberg Presidential Learning Center, Ronald Reagan Presidential Library & Museum

Rolin is creative, open-minded, an adept leader, a strong team player, and very engaging. He understands how new media allows connection and collaboration with experts and communities of learners whether internal or external. He is an expert at networking and finding like-minded groups and communities for advocacy.

Linda Polin, Professor Emeritus of Educational Technology, Pepperdine University

There is no doubt of Rolin’s commitment and passion for education, especially for students in at-risk populations. His practical interests can also be seen in his scholarship where he addresses the relationship between theory, practice, and social assumptions on higher education.
