Traditional Higher Ed Dying

Traditional Higher Ed Dying | Sustainability | Scoop.it
Leaders of traditional colleges need to think differently about the new wave of competition. They can’t defend themselves with a few technology wrinkles. They have to imagine and plan for a very different world: A world without accreditation and credit hours as the basic units of service, replaced perhaps by competency measures and independently credentialed courses. A world in which students customize their degrees (or equivalent) from multiple institutions and experiences, with only a relatively short period in a full-service brick-and-mortar institution. And a world where students want different products at different prices, just as in other industries. Traditional colleges will have to learn about differential pricing for different levels of educational service.

A Blended Learning Model for Active Learning OpportunityIn the Faculty of Arts and Science at Queen’s University in Kingston, there are 2,600 first-year students. Popular courses like Psychology might have 1,600 student places and still not meet the demand. Classes have 450-700 students each. Professors, particularly in Psychology and Human Geography, were concerned about the passive experience of students who listen to three hours of lectures every week. They wanted more active learning, during which students would be discussing, applying, and integrating ideas. A model of blended learning, integrating lecture, learning labs, and online learning, has been developed and implemented to facilitate active learning. The Human Geography course was first offered in blended format in January 2011 semester; the Psychology course, Principles of Psychology, PSYC 100 began in September 2011.
