This list isn’t a ranking, and it’s by no means exhaustive. Consider it a snapshot of the various overlapping ways in which creative, passionate people around the U.S.A are working to make higher education more accessible, affordable, and effective.
This report is the first in a series to be issued at regular intervals as a part of the One Hundred Year Study on Artificial Intelligence (AI100). Starting from a charge given by the AI100 Standing Committee to consider the likely influences of AI in a typical North American city by the year 2030, the 2015 Study Panel, comprising experts in AI and other relevant areas focused their attention on eight domains they considered most salient: transportation; service robots; healthcare; education; low-resource communities; public safety and security; employment and workplace; and entertainment.
Employers are increasingly looking for workers with strong soft skills—those traits that don’t show up in a job posting but are essential for succeeding in the workplace, like working well with others and taking initiative. But many employers say it has gotten harder to find those applicants as the labor market tightens.
In this new study we discuss the emerging challenges associated with credentialing given the increasingly diverse landscape of higher education. We then explore the specific risks and affordances related to two distinctive approaches to capturing meaningful signals from this “unbundled” (and increasingly digitized) landscape of higher education: first, unbundling credentials from the university degree, and second, moving beyond credentials to more direct data-based evaluations. Based on this discussion, we offer a few guiding principles for future development of an ideal infrastructure for managing credentials.
Continuing Education (CE) divisions have long been seen as an addendum to the core higher education institution—a cash cow with little connection to the main campus. As the recipe for success in the postsecondary space evolves, however, so too has the role of CE. In this interview, the first of two parts, James Broomall reflects on the role CE divisions are playing in today’s higher education institutions and shares some insights into what CE leaders need to do to maintain their seat at the table
Universities have the unique opportunity to start a conversation about technology by researching the effects of technological progress and developing solutions that enable more people to derive its benefits.
Throughout the last academic year, we've followed a group of students who graduated from high school a few years ago. We spent the last year talking with them about their choice of public, private or community college. Was the cost worth it? What is the value of higher education? It turns out they're all satisfied customers. And among the most important subjects they report learning a lot about was themselves. Reconciling their plans and dreams with real life.
