According to the university, Professor Robert Hogan has been developing an innovative a hybrid doctoral program in educational leadership.

The hybrid learning combines face-to-face and online teaching to make higher education more accessible and affordable. It also shortens the time needed to graduate. In a statement, UniFiji highlighted that Prof Hogan brought to his new position years of experience in teaching and curriculum development throughout Oceania and the United States.

Prior to joining the University of Fiji, he was a doctoral chair at Walden University. He has also taught at the University of Phoenix, the University of the South Pacific and Nova University.

Dr Hogan earned his bachelor's and master's degrees at New York University, and his doctorate at the University of Central Florida.

Features of the new University of Fiji doctoral degree include a student-centered approach and small classes.

Teaching will be highly interactive and will incorporate mobile learning. This student-centered theme will flow through all courses, as will techniques to improve classroom quality through innovative technology.

Dr Hogan was a featured speaker at last October's 19th Annual Sloan International Conference on Online Learning where he discussed growing competition from foreign online universities in the Pacific.
