New Media Consortium (NMC) and EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) recently released  the NMC Horizon Report > 2014 Higher Education Edition.  It's part of an ongoing research project designed to identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have an impact on learning, teaching, and creative inquiry in education.

Fast Trends: Driving changes in higher education over the next one to two years

  • Growing Ubiquity of Social Media
  • Integration of Online, Hybrid, and Collaborative Learning

Mid-Range Trends: Driving changes in higher education within three to five years
  • Rise of Data-Driven Learning and Assessment
  • Shift from Students as Consumers to Students as Creators


Long-Range Trends: Driving changes in higher education in five or more years

  • Agile Approaches to Change   There is a growing consensus....that institutional leadership and curricula could benefit from agile startup models. 

  • Evolution of Online Learning Progress in learning analytics, adaptive learning, and a combination of cutting-edge asynchronous and synchronous tools will continue to advance the state of online learning... though many of these are still the subjects of experiments and research.
Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

Trend watching!  This is useful for any type of forecasting for higher education, with implications for anyone involved in learning and technology.  ~  D

Create-Learning » Results vs. Process. Achieving Goals While Improving the Work | Agile Learning | Scoop.it

A video is listed that examines process, vs. problems with Management by Objectives (MBOs) - it's not all about results.  LEAN is about process.   ...Have PDCA, Plan-Do-Check-Act within the leadership team.

It's not about, like losing weight, measuring more frequently.   What processes do we need to consider?   ...MBO meetings would sometimes includes, "I don't care how you do it, just do it (get the numbers.]"


"Results without a process is luck. Process without results is waste. How are your processes driving the goals you work to achieve?"
 

The need to have people fall in love with the process of working to achieve goals as opposed to the goal itself will allow quick change and more innovation.
 

The goal is not and should not be ignored…the challenge is that the processes being used to achieve the goal need to be evaluated to ensure you are working to achieve the goal.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

This timeline shows missing elements with problematic MBOs.  it's good to see this Knowledge Management piece on putting process & results together.
