Colleges of the future must go back to the future
Huffington Post - 03/30/2015
While I agree that the model of higher education will change in the future, that many institutions will close — Sweet Briar College is a recent casualty — and that technology will continue to impact the delivery of knowledge, we need to approach such changes with caution. For example, we should not presume that Generation Z and future net-savvy generations desire expanded use of technology or a depersonalized classroom experience. In fact, a Northeastern University study concludes that Generation Z is “less fixated on technology than might be presumed,” and their preference is a traditional undergraduate experience that teaches entrepreneurship and offers hands-on experiences and practical skills.
