Your Massively Open Offline College Is Broken

Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s curator insight, February 21, 6:43 AM

SCUP–49 plenary speaker Clay Shirky has a way with words. “Most stories have focused on the lightning, on MOOCs as the flashy new thing. I want to talk about the [rotten] tree”—higher education.

[L]ike every threatened profession, I see my peers arguing that we, uniquely, deserve a permanent bulwark against insurgents, that we must be left in charge of our destiny, or society will suffer the consequences. [W]e have a lot of good ideas and a lot of practice at making people smarter, but it’s not obvious that we have the best ideas, and it is obvious that we don’t have all the ideas. For us to behave as if we have—or should have—a monopoly on educating adults is just ridiculous.

Gregory A. Smith's curator insight, February 27, 7:12 AM

Clay Shirky's analysis of the state of traditional higher education--as opposed to alternatives such as MOOCs--seems to follow the logic of Clayton Christensen's disruptive innovations, but with more attitude.

I think there's some truth to this. However, I'm concerned that we will limit the discussion to "the kids". The notion of loving your work and using it to define your identity goes back a long way - most of us working today are subject to this logic.

Keith Hampson PhD (Managing Director, Client Innovations @Acrobatiq's insight:

 

"This pilot study gives us a window into the educational quality of two research institutions. Yet, we need to know more about whether these findings would hold true at other institutions and institutional types. To answer these next questions, the College Educational Quality project will pursue a second, multi-institutional benchmarking pilot of 7-10 institutions in fall of 2014."

Labor Intensive or Labor Expensive? Changing Staffing and Compensation Patterns in Higher Education | Innovation in Digital Higher Ed | Scoop.it
Skyrocketing college tuitions and trillion-dollar student loan debt have put college and university spending in the spotlight. Colleges and universities increasingly rely on part-time faculty to meet instructional demands and rein in costs, but rising benefit costs and increased hiring for other types of positions have undercut those savings, a new report by the Delta Cost Project at AIR finds.
