Texas's Big Bet on the Future of Higher Education

By Steven Mintz. In a recent blog posting on the University of Texas System’s Institute for Transformational Learning, Joshua Kim expressed a preference for “investing in faculty.” That was precisely what the ITL did, though not, I suspect, in quite the way he meant. More...

Prospective des Métiers et Qualifications (PMQ) : bilan et perspectives

Cela fait bientôt trente ans que la France s’est engagée dans la production d’exercices de prospective des métiers et des qualifications, intitulés PMQ.

The Future of On-Campus Higher Education?

The Future of On-Campus Higher Education?
Margaret Andrews, Inside Higher Ed, 2015/04/07

I'm not sure exactly when this came out (it's copyrighted 2100) but it's more Stanford hubris, 'discovering' a future the rest of us have been talking about for years. Here are the major elements:

  • Education will be fully envisaged as a lifelong journey, rather than a one-shot, four-year stint
  • The education will focus more on skill acquisition than disciplinary topics and therefore the university will be organized around competency hubs, rather than academic fields
  • The education model will move from an industrial revolution-style, one-size-fits-few freshman/sophomore/junior/senior classification to a personal-paced learning program
  • The school will move away from having students declare a major, toward having them declare a purpose

Of these, the last is the most interesting. More...

Hearts, Minds and Screens: Taming the Future

Hearts, Minds and Screens: Taming the Future
I can see how this paper, especially when delivered as a keynote address, would leave readers and listeners scratching their heads. But there is a deep and multi-layered understanding of what is going on in e-learning exhibited in this essay (and you'll be introduced to four new words, describing four scenarios of online learning in the future). I can't tell you what this paper is about: the meaning will shift according to your own individual context. Don't just read this paper start-to-finish. More...

Shireen Jaffer, Getting Smart, 2018/02/19

Google Thinks The Future Of The Web Is . . . Email

Google Thinks The Future Of The Web Is . . . Email
Mark Wilson, Co.Design, 2018/02/14
This is another phase of their Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) project. The idea is to deliver media content embedded in the email meddage, rather than having you open it in your browser (this of course ensures you never leave the Google environment). Why is this important? Well, it reflects the increasing importance of email to marketers as they lose their ability to position their content in social media. More...
