Barbara A. Macaulay
Barbara A. Macaulay currently serves as the Associate Provost for Online Education/CEO of MCPHS Online at the Mass College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences, overseeing the development and implementation of online health care programs. She spent some 28 years in the public higher education arena at both the community college and university levels, engaged in various aspects of adult and continuing education. Her last position was as Associate Vice President and Chief Academic Officer for UMass Online. She also taught graduate courses in adult and continuing education at several colleges in Massachusetts, as well as at Teachers College and was a doctoral advisor for the AEGIS Program for several years. In addition to earning an Ed.D. and MA at Teachers College, she holds an M.Ed. from Worcester State University and a B.S. from Springfield College. The research interests were and are strongly tied to adult learning in various settings and venues; needless to say, she has been well served by this area of interest/expertise in online education where adult learning practices must be carefully integrated into online program and course delivery, as well as faculty preparation.
