The Interstate Passport Initiative to simplify Students mobility

The Interstate Passport Initiative to simplify Students mobility | Higher Education | Scoop.it
Colleges and universities are feeling the heat when it comes to increasing higher education accessibility to Americans.
In particular, the process of transferring between institutions, most notably across state lines, has come under a lot of flak.

Via Alberto Acereda, Ph.D.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"The initiative defines a set of learning outcomes agreed upon by 16 participating colleges and universities and is designed to create a seamless transfer policy between institutions; even those across state lines.

Students enrolled in general education or liberal arts programs will now have the option to transfer between participating institutions without having to worry about credits earned or courses taken. Instead, institutions are in control of their own specified outcomes or competency requirements to determine acceptance or placement of a transferring student."

'Queremos que el país genere conocimiento, no que lo importe' - Perú

'Queremos que el país genere conocimiento, no que lo importe' - Perú | Higher Education | Scoop.it
El ministro de la Producción, Piero Ghezzi , declaró que la iniciativa legislativa propuesta por el Ejecutivo de promover que las empresas inviertan en innovación tecnológica , responde a un interés porque el país genere conocimiento, no que lo importe de otros países.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

Muy importante iniciativa para impulsar la innovación tecnológica brindando importantes incentivos tributarios a las empresas que inviertan en ella. Esperemos que cuando se refiera a que la empresa "podrá trabajar con una universidad nacional", incluya también a las universidades privadas que tienen capacidades de investigación.

Universidades se oponen a ‘superintendencia de educación’ - Colombia

Universidades se oponen a ‘superintendencia de educación’ - Colombia | Higher Education | Scoop.it
Producto de esa reunión, los rectores suscribieron una carta conjunta donde describen detalladamente sus desacuerdos con la implementación de dicha “superintendencia de educación”. En la misiva, enviada el 16 de febrero, dejan en claro sus reparos frente a la creación de un nuevo cuerpo burocrático adicional al Ministerio de Educación Nacional (MEN). “Su existencia implicaría defectos administrativos tales como la duplicidad de funciones, sin contar con el riesgo de politización que puede ocurrir”, dicen. Además, tal y como se lee, ven la creación de este nuevo organismo como una decisión más de tipo político que jurídico.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

La misma historia se repite en Colombia.

Meet The Woman Who Wants To Grow Clothing In A Lab

Meet The Woman Who Wants To Grow Clothing In A Lab | Higher Education | Scoop.it
Fashion designers don’t usually give tours of biology laboratories, but on a rainy day this fall, deep in an industrial complex along the Brooklyn waterfront, Suzanne Lee guides me through the warren of labs that make up Modern Meadow. Lee recently joined the biotech start-up as its creative director. Beneath her white lab coat she wears leather pants and a neoprene shirt with a lightning bolt. When I ask what exactly a creative director of a biotech start-up does, she points to a plastic bracelet that encases the husks of three beetles. “Nature is the best designer,” she says. Her job is to make it ready-to-wear.

Will Professors teach differently in 10 Years?

Will Professors teach differently in 10 Years? | Higher Education | Scoop.it
There are extensive data demonstrating a troubling lack of interest in STEM undergraduate study, and only a small fraction of the students enrolled finish a STEM degree. It is too common to have a high failure rate in basic mathematics, physics and chemistry courses, and too easy to blame the poor performance on previous instruction at the basic school levels. Weak prior education is indeed a reality that has resulted in a need for remedial programs at many universities. However, there is a substantial share of responsibility to be allocated to professors, who usually don´t accommodate their teaching strategy to address the needs of the students they are teaching, and who ignore scientific evidence substantiating a clear improvement in student performance when novel methods are employed in the classroom.

How can universities use MOOCs to recruit students?

How can universities use MOOCs to recruit students? | Higher Education | Scoop.it

"The MOOC pioneer Udacity figured this out and pivoted in 2013. Coursera pivoted last year and now, in addition to MOOCs with “verified certificates” (not for credit, but a certificate indicating... something), Coursera offers Specializations (a defined series of courses), and is licensing MOOCs for universities to incorporate into existing degree programs -- an uphill battle in the “not invented here” world of American higher education."

The Forever Professors!

The Forever Professors! | Higher Education | Scoop.it
In short, American academe has created a continuing disaster by resting faculty retirement solely on the cornerstones of senior professors’ self-interest and self-assessment. Unless higher education comes up with a mechanism—or social consensus—that makes retiring by 70 the honorable and decent thing to do, everyone’s individual "right to work" past 70 will crush the young. Yes, continuing to be a full-time tenured professor past 70 ought to be possible, but it should be a rare privilege reserved only for the most productive and effective-in-the-classroom scholars, artists, and research scientist

How Learning Artistic Skills Alters the Brain

How Learning Artistic Skills Alters the Brain | Higher Education | Scoop.it
"Maybe there are gene variants that give individuals a proclivity toward art (e.g. make them more open to new ideas or more prone to make connections or see patterns), but that is a long way from saying they were born an artist and that those without such gene variants are doomed to being uncreative," Schlegel concludes. "It also propagates the strange myth of the artist as a special class of human. I hope our study will help to debunk the notion that there are "artists" and "the rest of us.”
