Agree with this comment:  "We are not doing enough hands on learning in our undergrad courses as it is and our graduates and grad students don't know the first thing about how to apply the information they "earned" when they get out into the real world. That is the change that needs to happen in our education system and it needs to happen  quickly. If not our institutions are going to implode. When the populace feels there is little to no value in your product, you wont last long in the field." --GwendolynThompsonSchmidt

1975 Was 'the End of Higher Education’s Golden Age' -Clay Shirky

1975 Was 'the End of Higher Education’s Golden Age' -Clay Shirky | higher ed innovation | Scoop.it

For 30 wonderful years, we had been unusually flush, and we got used to it, re-designing our institutions to assume unending increases in subsidized demand. This did not happen. The year it started not happening was 1975. Every year since, we tweaked our finances, hiking tuition a bit, taking in a few more students, making large lectures a little larger, hiring a few more adjuncts.

 

Each of these changes looked small and reversible at the time. Over the decades, though, we’ve behaved like an embezzler who starts by taking only what he means to replace, but ends up extracting so much that embezzlement becomes the system. There is no longer enough income to support a full-time faculty and provide students a reasonably priced education of acceptable quality at most colleges or universities in this country.

Is he correct? "Our current difficulties are not the result of current problems. They are the bill coming due for 40 years of trying to preserve a set of practices that have outlived the economics that made them possible."

Thomas Carlson-Reddig's curator insight, February 10, 2014 5:45 PM

The expectations of college students and parents have also factored into the faciltiries that are being provided. Universities that fail to improve their campuses and offer amenities and the kinds of learning environments now expected on college campuses are in even greater danger.
