Improving Measurement of Productivity in Higher Education

Improving Measurement of Productivity in Higher Education | Higher Ed Management | Scoop.it

"Higher education is a critical element of the American economy, because of both its benefits and its costs to individuals and taxpayers. Yet we know very little about the relationships between the things colleges and universities do and the resources they need to do them. Currently, shrinking public support and increasing tuition make it urgent that we understand our own productivity and how to measure it. The challenge we face is to contain costs without compromising quality or accessibility.

 

This article summarizes the report of the National Research Council Panel on Measuring Higher Education Productivity (NRC 2012a). Table 1, derived from material in the report, also appears in Massy, Sullivan, and Mackie (2013)."

The Department of Change: 2013: Resilience vs. campus sustainability?

The Department of Change: 2013: Resilience vs. campus sustainability? | Higher Ed Management | Scoop.it

Has “sustainability” run its course? Is it time for the Next Big Thing? 

So now what? Is it time for the Next Big Thing?  Has “sustainability” run its course? Before we think about that, what has sustainability accomplished? Well, on campuses at least, there are more courses, majors, schools, colleges and certificates in sustainability than ever; fairly rapid growth because many students want to learn about it. More campuses are offering sustainability curricula. More students are signing up for these classes. This is no small feat and a very hopeful sign. Likewise, campus carbon emissions are moderating or even going down. Green buildings are going up. Zero waste efforts are also on the rise. Local food programs/campus gardens are taking root. Renewable energy is up. And we are getting better at measuring all these impacts (STARS!). Great environmental improvements. Yet missing from the list of sustainability’s accomplishments are two important categories: fiscal equity and social justice.

Number four, of four, pertains:


4. Low-cost, online, competency-based learning universities. Innosight Institute Education Executive Director and Disrupting Class co-author Michael Horn noted this one. He said, "We'll see UniversityNow and others rise up and get more attention as their ultra-affordable degrees (no government dollars or loans needed) that are aligned to real work-force needs gain increasing traction in today's market. Some will take the best from MOOCs and mash them up with teachers, tutors, coaches and more to give students a complete learning experience." Horn also suggested that companies like Code Academy and DevBootcamp will increasingly provide face-to-face mechanisms that complement MOOCs. ... 


It is still early enough in the development of any of these areas that market leaders in respective sectors have sufficient time to formulate response strategies. They should be doing much more than watching and analyzing however — they should be actively experimenting in the disruptive space, either through organic efforts or through investments and partnerships.


Market leaders also should ensure that they monitor a set of metrics that help them identify the acceleration or deceleration of a particular trend, because response windows can close quickly.

Sharing. Good capture on this wave of ongoing disruption via the higher education bubble.

I'm sharing commentary from SCUP's insights below, very useful for change leadership planning.  Are you "doing much more than watching and analyzing?" — Are you "actively experimenting in the disruptive space?"
