Trends 2015: the changing context of European higher education

Trends 2015: the changing context of European higher education | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

In most EHEA countries, universities are coping with the consequences of the economic crisis, which in some places is paired with negative demographic trends and migration. The report identifies a number of steps taken by universities to respond to this context as well as to other European and international trends.

Alfredo Corell's insight:

EUA has launched the Trends 2015 report, which presents the universities’ perceptions of the changes that have taken place in European higher education over the past five years, particularly in relation to learning and teaching. Based on survey responses of 451 higher education institutions from 46 countries (48 higher education systems), the report outlines the changing context in which higher education institutions operate.

Via John Shank

So how exactly does online education figure into the future of elite higher education? Judging by what we’ve seen so far, the answer can be divided into three parts:


1. Free online courses for everyone.

2. Paid online courses for professional graduate programs.

3. Online components in face-to-face undergraduate courses.

15+ Ways to Create New Content from Old Content | Kim Garst | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

As a busy business owner, you likely don’t have time to create new content at the rate at which your audience demands it. Yet, with content marketing now being the #1 driver of search rankings, you can’t afford not to be constantly publishing new content.


Fortunately, there are ways you can take your existing content and feed it to the content marketing beast. With a little bit of elbow grease and some creativity, you can edit and re-use what you already have, and turn it into something your audience can’t get enough of!...

Lots of good content recycling tips here. I have taken not of the details and intend to apply them. You should too. Well done Kim and good comments from Jeff Domansky

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, January 9, 10:22 AM

This is what most content creators will do, recycle old content to produce new content from an older content that has been tweaked and modified. As an an active blogger, I do the same with great effect. The implications for educationists lies in their ability to re-visit old posts after a lapse of some time whereby they can tweak and retouch observations according to what they have done in class. It always makes sense to re-visit old content and see how this content can be made more relevant to existing trends. While recycling might be achieved through re-posting of content as it is, a more pro-active approach would be to consider changing the title, adding more content and in addition, making necessary changes and corrections to make 'Old content' more in line with the latest in the industry. No doubt it might be difficult for content creators to continue producing good content throughout, so it makes sense to try recycling older content.

Wouldn't it be great if creating infographics was just as simple as writing regular ole text-based blog posts? Unfortunately, the reality is that making visual content like this usually takes a lot more time, effort, and let's face it -- skill -- than the written word. 


Usually.But considering the popularity and effectiveness of visual content in marketing today, you can't just afford to throw in the towel. That's why we decided to take all the pain and suffering out of infographic creation.

Ivo Nový's curator insight, December 19, 2014 9:46 AM
Guillaume Decugis's insight:

When we started working on Scoop.it, we had a lot of questions on why we even needed tools for content curation. Some were questioning the purpose or the effectiveness of curation, others were convinced it was a valuable practice but challenged the need for a tool. "I don't need a tool to tweet links, right?" or what Julia McCoy refers to as Myth #10 in that great post. 


She does a great job debunking 12 misconceptions which are still quite common about content curation but which luckily are starting to die as content curation delivers more and more results and thanks to educational content like hers.

donhornsby's curator insight, December 20, 2014 7:55 AM

(From the article): Myth #7: You Aren’t a Thought Leader If You Use Third Party Content. Truthfully, I can see why digital marketers would initially think this. When I first heard of curating content, I thought the same thing. However, I quickly learned that this could not be further from the truth. Curating third party content actually does make you a thought leader for several reasons:

 

You show honesty: you show your audience that sometimes your influencers can write something or present something better than you. You can’t always be the best at everything, and that is OK.You can actually connect with said influencer by mentioning them on Twitter when you link to their article or content piece and get them to potentially follow you, thus building a very valuable connection.You build credibility with that third party source, and possibly attract more third parties that want to share the content that you create.Curating influencer content helps build your brand, which can lead to gaining a new audience that respects your thoughts.

As you can see, curating content does not make you take a backseat. It is an opportunity to build credibility with both your audience and your influencers.
