  8. 8. Irvine, V. (2011). Multi-Access learning
  9. 9. Seems Like A Lot of Effort?
  10. 10. Online Learning • 25% increase in Higher Ed e-learning market in 2012-2017 (Education Sector Factbook, 2012) • Full-time students are in the minority (Bates) • Brick-and-Mortar Universities are sleeping giants in online learning (Irvine, 2013)
  11. 11. Revenue • 90-95% controlled by government • 50-60% in grants • Remainder in regulated domestic tuition
  12. 12. Decreasing 18-22 demographic nationally. USask, (2009). Managing enrollment strategically at the University of Saskatchewan 2009 Report. Available online: http://bit.ly/Ik8ypY
  13. 13. Student Tuition Income • Demographic decline a significant issue • Domestic numbers unlikely to increase before 2030 • International student numbers will drop quickly after 2020 • Ability to increase resources is about increasing net tuition
  14. 14. ISSUES FACING BRICK & MORTAR UNIVERSITIES Current PSE Landscape demonstrates 1. Diminishing funds/cutbacks from the provincial government; 2. Increase in colleges with degree-granting status provincially 3. Increase in online programs globally
  15. 15. Increase in online programs world-wide…. or Everything we provide is now offered by someone else. -- David Wiley
  16. 16. Meeting Future Revenue Needs • Governments… not • Undergraduate students… not much • Graduate students… yes • International students… yes, but now competitive
  17. 17. ISSUES FACING BRICK & MORTAR UNIVERSITIES What students want: Flexibility in their learning options • Many have to work FT/PT jobs to be able to afford PSE • Reluctant to leave their positions in this economic climate
  18. 18. SOLUTION to Increase Revenue Top ways cited to increase revenue are to: 1. Recruit international students; and 2. Deliver course-based master’s programs.
  19. 19. A 3rd SOLUTION… Change access and registration options
  20. 20. SOLUTION: Multi-Access Learning
  21. 21. Current Face to Face Option
  22. 22. Current Online Option
  23. 23. Destination in Place and Space
  24. 24. LEARNER ACCESS: Promoting Student Agency • Emergence of choice - expanding “anytime, anywhere” • Social media/personalized learning networks expanded this to “with anyone” • I would like to expand this to “in any way”
  25. 25. MOST IMPORTANTLY Transfer locus of control of how to access courses to the learner.
  26. 26. Reassembling the Building Blocks has RISK…but we otherwise risk irrelevance
