Sharing inspiration for bringing ideas to life!

Bonus Reading for the “6 Take Aways”

If you want to dig a little deeper into the higher education trends I shared earlier, here are my top 4 suggestions:

1.       Read this for ‘higher education 101” for today:

Connecting the Dots: New Technology-Based Models for Postsecondary Learning, by Chris Dede, Harvard Graduate School of Education, in Educause Review September/October 2013.

2.       Read this for what might be coming: federal accreditation of courses

A Quality Platform for Non-Institutional Higher Education by Judith S. Eaton, President of the Council for Higher Education Accreditation in Educause Review September/October 2013.

3.       Read this to understand WHY federal accreditation of courses is likely to be coming

Accreditation: ally or obstacle as higher education wrestled with change? A blog post by Lloyd Armstrong, University Professor and Provost Emeritus at the University of Southern California.

4.       Read this for a perspective on the government privatization of postsecondary education in the UK – inspired by the USA (thank you to Paul McConaughy for sharing this in his daily update)

The Counterreformation in Higher Education – a book review by Christopher Newfield of The Great University Gamble: Money, Markets, and the Future of Higher Education by Andrew McGettigan. Newfield is author of Unmaking the Public University: The 40-Year Assault on the Middle Class and the blog Remaking the University.
