SignificantSystems for Higher Education

SignificantSystems for Higher Education | The Future of Higher Education | Scoop.it

The future of education will move from massive physical and administrative infrastructure expenses back to the roots of education: the Professors. The new education models will need a powerful faculty that operates much more efficiently and greatly improves the mastery-of-learning for their students, all while increasing not only job security, but overall compensation. This is a profound paradigm shift in Higher Education taking place right now.

Hiring Outlook in Higher Education IT -- Campus Technology

Hiring Outlook in Higher Education IT -- Campus Technology | The Future of Higher Education | Scoop.it
With cloud computing, mobile technology and big data analytics on the rise, a lot of change is coming to campus IT departments. And along with all that change comes the need for many colleges and universities to ramp up their IT hiring in 2015.

That is both good news and bad news. It's great for job seekers, of course, when organizations increase head count. But for higher education institutions — not known for their top IT salaries — competition with the corporate sector should be tough.

Mind the Gap … Between Grad Skills and Employer Expectations

Mind the Gap … Between Grad Skills and Employer Expectations | The Future of Higher Education | Scoop.it

There is a skills gap, highly localized at present, but likely to grow quickly as technology continues its unrelenting expansion. Providing the skills needed to deal with this phenomenon is not the job of the academy alone. As the Chamber of Commerce study outlines, new relationships and new forms of collaboration are needed, both to enhance the CBE effort and to maintain the competitiveness of a high-tech workforce. Higher education’s unique contribution will be to ensure that its graduates know how to learn.
