The Perfect Storm for Universities

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.'"

Lack of faculty time and training limits digital learning more than resistance does, study finds | Inside Higher Ed

Lack of faculty time and training limits digital learning more than resistance does, study finds | Inside Higher Ed | The Future of Higher Education | Scoop.it
A new survey of faculty members and administrators by Tyton Partners asserts that the use of digital instructional technologies, which it endorses, is facing "headwinds" in adoption by colleges and universities. The study identifies faculty take-up of digital courseware and other tools as among the leading impediments to their spread -- but cites faculty members' lack of time and the training they receive from their institutions as far bigger cause than their outright opposition.

Kellie Wheatley's curator insight, May 9, 9:25 PM

A great site for outlining the implementation of technology in the classroom. It outlines the most effective integration methods and appropriate situations for certain digital formats and platforms. 

It details the need for personalised learning through flexibility, progression and individuality, all of which are based off modern learning methods. In specific regards to technology, this article explains:

- virtual classrooms

- audio and video integration

- data interpreting

- student mentoring

- transitioning from consumers to producers (more hands-on)

- truth vs untruth

- social environments of learning (an online presence)

- learning camps (a place to find individuality)

- transitioning through schools (students, environments and        teachers)


These ideas are important to consider, particularly for pre-service teachers like myself. These are key aspects to students being able to move forward in regards to technology, and this publication outlines all of that. The aspects which I found most beneficial, and that I could relate to were the transitioning from consumers to producers and teaching through transitions of the schooling system. Both of these promote a more hands-on classroom with students being able to apply their skills, while being taught and supported by their teacher.

Darren Schmidt's comment, May 14, 8:42 AM
Are these trends, and not technologies?
Terry Smith's curator insight, June 9, 5:32 PM
I re-scooped this article specifically because it deals with how technology has influenced personalized learning particularly in online environments.  The article goes through the various ways that technology is reshaping, adapting and enhancing how students learn.

Higher Education Is Failing Older Americans

Higher Education Is Failing Older Americans | The Future of Higher Education | Scoop.it
Of students starting college in fall 2010, 54.8% have now finished—up 1.9 percentage points from the prior year’s cohort. (Isn’t it depressing that a 55% graduation rate is good news?) While the numbers are improving, they also mask wide variation in graduation rates for different demographic groups. Some people, particularly older college-goers, are earning their credentials at much lower rates.
