As a boy, Dr. Fred Lang grew up in Vallejo, Calif., next to the Mare Island Naval Shipyard where they built submarines. The submarines fascinated him as did the many wartime stories their commanders told. The stories he heard and his interest in politics were shaped by his early experiences and influenced his career choices later in life; from getting his bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of California at Santa Barbara to a master’s degree in public administration to his Ph.D. from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco.
Lang became a professor for the University of Phoenix in its online doctorate program in the ‘90s. He had difficulty transitioning from the brick and mortar classroom to a virtual one, he said. His doctoral dissertation focused upon distance learning and how to teach in a virtual classroom. Today he teaches leadership seminars online for Bellevue University.Add a comment
