  34. Future of higher education
  35. Current reforms are allowing certain individuals with neither scholarly nor practical expertise in education to exert significant influence over educational policy for communities and children other than their own.
  36. Increasing diversity of student profiles The U.S. is now in a position when less than half of students could be considered fulltime students. In other words, students who can attend campus five days a week nine-to-five, are now a minority. (Bates, 2013)
  37. Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, 2013
  38. “Both student and teacher are unhappy when chained to curricula and syllabi, to tests and mediocre standards. An atmosphere of uninspired and uninspiring common sense may well produce satisfactory mastery of technical “know how” and testable factual information. Such an atmosphere, however, stifles genuine understanding and the spirit of adventure in research.” Karl Jaspers, The Idea of the University 1959
  39. What we are seeing is the complexification of higher education Learning needs are complex, ongoing Simple singular narrative won’t suffice going forward The idea of the university is expanding and diversifying
  40. The development of a shadow education system.
  41. Prominent trends shaping the future of higher education 1. Openness 2. Digital learning 3. Granularized learning 4. Data & analytics 5. For-profit/startups (expanding ecosystem) 6. Personalization/adaptivity 7. Wearable/contextual computing 8. Unbundling of organizational roles 9. Blurring distinctive learning roles (lifelong) 10.Degrees and alternative recognition models
