Connected Campus — The Future is Your Student

  1. 1. Connected Campus: The Future is Your Student
  2. 2. Peter Coffee VP for Strategic Research @petercoffee
  3. 3. What Higher Ed Means to Me • This isn’t just business. It’s personal. • My parents - Both were Alumni Medal recipients from Columbia University - My mother edited the Alumnae magazine at Barnard College • My wife and myself - Volunteer science educators in both elementary and high schools - My wife: MIT Visiting Committee for Aerospace Engineering - Myself: Lecturer at MIT, Harvard, Stanford, Pepperdine, Chapman, UCLA • The next generations - Three sons in their 20s (MIT & UC San Diego)…versus the world - One 2-year-old granddaughter who’ll need something even better
  4. 4. We’re All Here On a Mission • You’ve heard it before: core assumptions of traditional higher-ed practice are misaligned with new realities of opportunity and need • Let’s ask: what would be better? - Draw on new means of collaboration - Address rapid knowledge acceleration - Reflect reality of business globalization - Weave this into next-gen education •  It’s about strong, lifelong relationships with your constituents - Beyond the 4-year degree…to a continual stream of value
  5. 5. Facts Change “When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do, sir?” - probably never actually said by John Maynard Keynes Let’s talk about the facts that have changed: - “The amount of knowledge in the world…is doubling every 18 months” - - “34 percent [of Americans] say they won’t retire until they are at least 80 years old, up from 25 percent in 2011 and 30 percent in 2012” - - “If you want to know what college is actually like in this country, forget Swarthmore, with 1500 students. Think Houston Community College, with 63,000. Think rolling admissions. Think commuter school. Think older. Think poorer. ” -
  6. 6. The “Shareconomy” Wants to Share with Higher Ed There are structural changes affecting every marketplace - Ease of discovery: power to find exactly what you need, now - Economy of trust: access to others’ unfiltered reports of experience - Efficiency of payment: plummeting cost of transactions - Accountability for outcome: mechanisms for measurement Higher Education has yet to reflect this shift to a “subscription” model - Go to a campus and take courses before we need (or understand) them - Make choices based on limited and selective data as to what has value - Acquire (and pay for) a degree as if it were a long-lived capital asset - Send money to alma mater for the rest of our lives in voluntary gratitude
  7. 7. What would Higher Ed look like if we’d known… …that people would be connected 24×7?
  8. 8. What would Higher Ed look like if we’d known… …that science would be crowdsourced and gamified? “The game, called EteRNA, allows players to remotely carry out real experiments to verify their predictions of how RNA molecules fold. The first big result: a study published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, bearing the names of more than 37,000 authors – only 10 of them professional scientists.”
  9. 9. What would Higher Ed look like if we’d known… …that data would tell us what’s interesting, instead of making us design experiments to ask? “By combing through 7.2 million of our electronic medical records, we have created a disease network to help illustrate relationships between various conditions and how common those connections are. Take a look by condition or condition category and gender to uncover interesting associations.”
  10. 10. The Challenge Isn’t News. The Answers Are. • We live and work longer; knowledge lifetime is shorter • Communication costs less; ignorance costs more • Jobs need more knowledge; employability takes more time • “No U.S. pick-and-shovel laborer can compete with the work of a steam shovel. The modern industrial revolution is similarly bound to devalue the brain, in its simpler and more routine decisions.” • “Taking the second revolution as accomplished, the average human being of mediocre attainments or less has nothing to sell…worth anyone's money to buy.” – Norbert Wiener, 1948 • Our shared mission: to enable tomorrow’s attainments
