After decades of pushing bachelor's degrees, U.S. needs more tradespeople | PBS NewsHour - 0 views

  •  
    ""I'm a survivor of that teardown mode of the '70s and '80s, that college-for-all thing," he said. This has had the unintended consequence of helping flatten out or steadily erode the share of students taking vocational courses. In California's community colleges, for instance, it's dropped to 28 percent from 31 percent since 2000, contributing to a shortage of trained workers with more than a high school diploma but less than a bachelor's degree."

(Why It's Time to Admit) the Capitalist Internet is a Failure - 0 views

  •  
    "The internet should be either a post-capitalist good, or a public good. A public utility. Like a town square. Things like Facebook and YouTube and Twitter never should have been capitalist at all. Like all town squares, the rules of civilized speech should apply. I can't call someone a nasty name, harass them, intimidate them, bully them there - nor should I be able to here. The capitalist internet is one of history's great failures, my friends. Whether we know it now or not, our grandkids will certainly regard it that way. They'll be incredulous that we were seduced and then addicted by its garbage culture, its trash spectacles, its junk food for the human mind and spirit, all so we could get a desperate hit of feeling power and control…while our planet, democracies, future, and lives were all melting down. It's up to us to build a better internet, and do it now. And whether we do that through post-capitalism, or through public goods - or both - that challenge is very real, very urgent, and very noble."

Colleges are upending majors - 0 views

  •  
    "a quiet movement is brewing in U.S. high schools to reboot curriculums with the objective of better preparing students for a different future of work. The same is happening at a handful of universities - in this case roiling the traditional major model."

When Colleges Consider Outsourcing Online Programs, Calculations Can Get Complicated - 0 views

  •  
    "expect to see more colleges turn to these providers, said Michael Feldstein, a consultant and co-publisher of the popular e-Literate blog, who has long followed the OPM market. A survey released last week by The Chronicle of Higher Education and P3-EDU, a conference on public-private partnerships to be hosted by George Mason University, found that 42 percent of provosts, chief financial officers and presidents surveyed said that expanding online programs was the area they most considered turning to a private company to help with."

UVa to lay off continuing studies employees - 0 views

  •  
    "The University of Virginia expects to lay off or request retirement from as many as 38 employees at its School of Continuing and Professional Studies this spring. Lower student demand and the end of program partnerships have led to a drop in enrollment and an $8 million budget shortfall, according to Dean Alex Hernandez. His team views reorganization as its last option to address the crisis."

Reframing the Conversation about OER - 0 views

  •  
    "However, it is individual faculty, not CAOs and CIOs, who make the decisions about course materials - and by extension, the use of OER materials in their classes.   And there is evidence that faculty are far less enthusiastic about OER than CAOs and CIOs. Drawing again from the 2018 Campus Computing Survey, just two-fifths (38 percent) of CIOs report that faculty at their institution "believe that the quality of OER course materials is about the same as comparable commercial products.""

Mega-Universities Are On the Rise. They Could Reshape Higher Ed as We Know It. - 0 views

  •  
    ""The shortage of students is a fallacy," says Michael M. Crow, president of Arizona State University, which enrolled more than 95,000 undergraduates in 2017, about 28,000 of them online. The number of Americans with some college but no degree presents "an unbelievable market," he adds, but most institutions that educate students on a brick-and-mortar campus are not equipped to recruit, or serve, such students."

Is Microsoft or Google your next LMS? The view from BETT - - 0 views

  •  
    "It may have been the (AI-recommended) Microsoft Kool-aid1, but it appears Google and Microsoft are edging their way into the LMS space. Their presence at a K-12 focused show suggests they are finding traction at the younger grades. But as their education offerings grow in sophistication, and their ecosystem advantages start to accelerate, I believe a more concerted push in the higher ed space is inevitable."

The Future of Jobs Report 2018 | World Economic Forum - 0 views

  •  
    "The Fourth Industrial Revolution is interacting with other socio-economic and demographic factors to create a perfect storm of business model change in all industries, resulting in major disruptions to labour markets. New categories of jobs will emerge, partly or wholly displacing others. The skill sets required in both old and new occupations will change in most industries and transform how and where people work. It may also affect female and male workers differently and transform the dynamics of the industry gender gap. The Future of Jobs Report aims to unpack and provide specific information on the relative magnitude of these trends by industry and geography, and on the expected time horizon for their impact to be felt on job functions, employment levels and skills."

From OPM to AI - 0 views

    "The new university/company AI partnership model will resemble the current online program management model, in which the AI company de-risks the AI investment with up-front capital and resources, and is paid by a revenue share."

How Universities Can Rethink Support For Growing Number Of Adult Learners - 0 views

  •  
    "You'll hear a reasonable amount of discussion about "new traditional" students today. But the common assumption - in Washington at least - seems to be that they require more vocational education to fill a "skills gap," particularly in STEM or technical fields. Or that they need quicker, cheaper paths to a degree."

What Kids Need to Learn to Succeed in 2050 - 0 views

  •  
    "In such a world, the last thing a teacher needs to give her pupils is more information. They already have far too much of it. Instead, people need the ability to make sense of information, to tell the difference between what is important and what is unimportant, and, above all, to combine many bits of information into a broad picture of the world."

    ""Students are going to be a hot commodity, a scarce resource," said Grawe. "It's going to be harder during this period for institutions to aggressively increase tuition. It may be a time period when it's a little easier on parents and students who are negotiating over the financial aid package.""

Reimagining Higher Education in the Changing World - 0 views

  •  
    "Today we are launching a challenge, seeking the best ideas worldwide for how to align our postsecondary educational ecosystem to the future of work and life. We are looking for bold ideas that reimagine how we learn across our lifetimes, ideas that expand opportunity for all members of our society and foster equity. We hope to uncover ideas and seed the development of tools that will ensure that all learners, especially low-income students, can draw on a diverse array of educational opportunities that provide them the skills they need to find the opportunities to work and live meaningful and economically stable lives."
