Why Higher Education Is a Public Good, Not Just a Private Investment

Why Higher Education Is a Public Good, Not Just a Private Investment | collaborative learning in higher education | Scoop.it

Robert B. Reich is an American political economist, professor, author, and political commentator, and has served in three national administrations, most recently as Secretary of Labor in the Clinton administration. 

 

Reich will address three key drivers of change in the economy that make higher education more important than ever—not just for individuals who will need a degree to an adequate income—but for our economy and society. Those drivers are (1) globalization, (2) technology, and (3) demographics.

I'd be interested in seeing if this holds true across cultures: "While the “command-and-control style” once dominated the business world, more feminine attributes like collaboration tend to fit today’s business model better."

Wish List for a Powerful Collaborative Writing Platform - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Wish List for a Powerful Collaborative Writing Platform - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education | collaborative learning in higher education | Scoop.it

In my last posting, I imagined what it might look like to fork the academy, that is, to create a space within the world of academic writing and publishing where we could directly reuse, adapt, and expand each other’s work. I also discussed some of the most significant obstacles that stand in the way, both at the disciplinary level and the kinds of personal concerns I have seen raised from friends and colleagues I have discussed the idea with.

In an earlier posting I looked at some of the reasons why GitHub.com, which has led the way in making the practice of "forking" repositories of code and text possible, is not really an ideal environment for scholars to use for writing and collaboration. It works, but it has been developed more for building software, than for writing books, academic papers, syllabi, and other the genres of writing we engage in.
