  • 21st Century Trends for Higher Education
    Students as Early Adopters: Adults ages 18–26 are typically the first to adopt new technologies and their schools to have the infrastructure to support the latest technologies.
    2. Globalization: The demand for higher education globally has increased and will continue to grow and universities are competing internationally for resources, faculty, the best students, and education funding. Overseas expansion creates opportunities for students and faculty in terms of exchange programs and expanded campus environments.
    3. Technical and information literacy: Ongoing need to create a
    campus culture that encourages faculty to use computers, smart devices, and
    other innovative tools in their curricula. Students may be device-savvy, but
    they may not necessarily be information-savvy.

  • Top 10 National Trends
    in Higher Education (# 4 - 6)
    4. Enrollment, retention, and branding: Growing recognition that the Internet is a viable way to market academic programs to prospective students while enhancing the school’s brand. The presence of schools in virtual online communities such as Second Life helps enhance the brand and YouTube’s education channels and iTunes U are effective not only for teaching and learning, but also for marketing a university’s strengths.
    5. Mobility: One-third of the 97 percent of college students who own a cell phone no longer use land lines to make voice calls. Tasks range from administrative (registration), to academic (downloading class materials), to social (instant messaging), to functional (checking transportation schedules), to keeping track of ideas (www.evernote.com).
    6. Pedagogical centers and innovative campus commons Creating social gathering, computer gaming areas, and collaborative seating arrangements. Campus commons are evolving to become key locations where technologies can be showcased and explored.
  • 7. Evolution of teaching and learning: Ongoing evolution from one-to-one (teacher to student) to collaborative learning. Open source course-management systems such as Moodle (http://moodle.org) and similar systems on Facebook are just some applications being reconfigured to support more content and student Open-content initiatives—such as OpenCourseWare from MIT, and the Research Impact Initiative and open content website from UC Berkeley—continue to grow, along with book digitization programs first initiated by Google.
    8. Collaboration: Universities are seeking new ways to facilitate collaboration to enhance research, classes, foreign exchanges, alumni relationships, and private sector partnerships. A variety of venues have emerged to make collaboration easier and more accessible by using virtual meeting-place and application-sharing tools such as Cisco® WebEx® TelePresence enables participants to conduct virtual meetings from nearly any location worldwide, creating a sense of “being there in-person.” Virtual locations in Second Life are creating alternative collaboration spaces, and emerging technologies are paving the way to integrate, or blend, virtual and physical realities.

  • Top 10 National Trends in Higher Education (# 9 - 10)
    9. Strategic plans and technology: Budget and efficiency are ongoing concerns in higher education. “Cloud computing”—a process that allows files and data to be stored on a remote network using the Internet—is one approach that may potentially lower certain costs (e.g. IT).
    10. Edutainment: Higher-education content and entertainment (edutainment) are becoming more intertwined. Professors are now using iTunes & YouTube podcasts videos that contain both educational and entertainment value. More than 120 schools have a presence in Second Life, using these virtual spaces for socializing, teaching, learning, and branding.
  • Impact of Spelling’s Report: A Test of LeadershipCharting the Future of U.S. Higher Education
    A significant push to expand access, by reducing academic and non-academic barriers to entry.
    Performance based outcome measures will increasingly be used to gauge effectiveness/funding allocations.
    Called to produce innovation in pedagogies, technologies, and curricula (particularly in STEM).
    USI is well positioned because of our niche as a
    high-access, affordable institution.
    We are continually improving quality, and are already innovative in these areas.
  • Core Transfer Library
    CTL is a list of courses that will transfer among all Indiana public colleges & universities.
    Over 80 courses have been approved to come into USI—primarily core courses or introductory courses. USI tends to be an “importer” of credits.
    Growing numbers of students have at least some of their course work completed elsewhere, which is significant for completion of the Core curriculum.
    Increase in the “swirl,” as students have coursework from multiple institutions, transferring from place to place or taking simultaneous courses from various universities.
    CAP and early college courses further enhance/complicate the transfer picture.
    Over the next 5 years, USI will continue to grapple with the changing nature of transfer students and how to best serve them.

    Software costs have skyrocketed resulting in increased use of open-source alternatives for providing online courses
    Increased concerns regarding validity of student work in online environments, resulting in new products and services to verify student identity.
    Develop of new technologies and techniques for teaching applied courses such as chemistry labs, biology dissection, etc.
