Levers of Change in Higher Education
Transcript of Levers of Change in Higher Education
Create "base" model graduates.
If you HAVE a college degree, ponder this ...
Separate the "courses" from the other customizations of "the college experience."
Did you enjoy taking the courses or just tolerate them as a necessary means to acquire the learning?
What we're seeing now is the separation of content, learning, and certification.
What we hope to get
"out" of education is more
than just increased knowledge.
We hope for a personal "customization"
of each student as they are exposed to ideas,

Even if the "route" is more expensive, it's important to offer it. (i.e. Nursing)

When does f2f education just cost too much?
Most of these scenarios
are completely out of our control
but many require the same kind of
Carnvale Focus Groups:
"In all the focus groups, we asked people: do you think everybody needs to go to college? 70-80% said no. But what we forgot to ask, and asked a few years later, was, should YOUR kid go to college? 85% said yes."
Either we begin (NOW)
to push education away from content delivery, AND TOWARDS HUMAN DEVELOPMENT,
or we'll go down
with the ship.
What can we do to prepare for this Disruptive Change?
Shift the focus from content to personal development and coaching.
Think about the "customizations" and how to provide and quantify them.
Except for those on the cutting edge, content is going to quickly become a dead-end.
