The Higher Education Bubble [infographic]

The Higher Education Bubble [infographic] | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Student loans are one of the biggest problems facing our country at the moment. Thousands of students attend university and even if they drop out, students still end up with mountains of debt. This debt can follow them throughout their life.

 

Today’s infographic says 85% of today’s college graduates will move back in with their parents after school. I know my parents would love seeing my face more around the house, although they would probably prefer I get a job after college. If only higher education didn’t cost as much.

 

Key takeaways:

 

- Student loans surpassed credit card debts.

- Students now graduate with an average debt of $24,000.00.

Don’t Lecture Me: Rethinking How College Students Learn

Don’t Lecture Me: Rethinking How College Students Learn | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

It’s a typical scene: a few minutes before 11:00 on a Tuesday morning and about 200 sleepy-looking college students are taking their seats in a large lecture hall – chatting, laughing, calling out to each other across the aisles. Class begins with a big “shhhh” from the instructor.

This is an introductory chemistry class at a state university. For the next hour and 15 minutes, the instructor will lecture and the students will take notes. By the end of class, the three large blackboards at the front of the room will be covered with equations and formulas.
