The Perfect Storm for Universities | The Future of Higher Education | Scoop.it
"It is widely accepted that we already have a serious crisis in higher education. For example, we can see this reflected by results on a US national poll sponsored by TIME and Carnegie Corporation and conducted by GfK Custom Research North America in October 2012. This national research used a sample of 1,000 U.S. adults and 540 senior administrators at public and private two- and four-year colleges and universities. Results revealed that 89% of U.S. adults and 96% of senior administrators at colleges and universities said higher education is in crisis, and almost half of both groups considered the crisis to be 'severe.'"

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.
