Necessary Elitism And The Demise Of Higher Education

Necessary Elitism And The Demise Of Higher Education | Flipping the Classroom in Higher Ed | Scoop.it

We still need higher education, but we need the university to be the domain of a relatively small group of people. After decades of broadcasting the message that college is for everyone, we may quite suddenly find ourselves wondering whether anyone should go to a traditional four-year college.

Essay arguing that major changes are coming to higher education | Flipping the Classroom in Higher Ed | Scoop.it

For higher education to fulfill its historic role as an engine of social mobility and economic growth, we must continue to seek big technology breakthroughs. This means thinking creatively about how to serve students as individuals, while also ensuring that many more students get the learning opportunities they deserve.

Vance Stevens's curator insight, November 11, 2013 8:00 AM

An interesting article that concludes " Like the flipped classroom, MOOCs may be the best thing that’s happened to Higher Education in the last two hundred years. It may encourage growth in higher education, based, not on the paper chase for degrees, the cramming, the poor teaching and primitive assessment but to a newer model, where students are drawn from a wider world and can try and take courses when they want from where they want.

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, November 2, 2013 5:57 PM

"Today’s humanities faculties that can’t build student enrollments are like people who can’t sell umbrellas during a rainstorm: great teachers teaching great books and great ideas are exactly what most students need. Unfortunately, too many people in the field in the last generation were interested in producing bad or indifferent teachers who taught dull and impenetrable books filled with tendentious and superficial ideas. And as for concepts like character and spiritual development, forget it. Fortunately, this seems to be changing among many younger faculty and grad students and there are grounds to hope that the humanities in America will regain some balance and poise."

"Well, here it is my favorite and most popular post of the year, my Top 100 Sites/Apps of the year!!!  Continuing w/ the trend from last year, readers are going to find more and more apps on the list and less sites, as the flux in mobile learning and BYOD (bring your own devices) continues to rise.  Also, you'll notice that there are a lot of learning tools for Digital Storytelling & Math.  I believe the reason for this is because storytelling is a learning tool that can be used by a wide range of educators for any subject, and Math is a very popular subject w/ lots of diverse ways to go about teaching it.  W/ that I hope you enjoy this list and as always thanks again for reading!!!"

The Terrible Erosion of the College Curriculum | Flipping the Classroom in Higher Ed | Scoop.it

At one time, it was common for colleges and universities to have a core curriculum for all students – courses that were thought to provide the foundation of a well-rounded education. Very few institutions of higher education have curricular requirements that come close to ensuring that their students receive a solid general education.
