OTC13: Classroom of the Future
|Author(s): Makevich, John|
Several disruptions are converging in higher education: budgets are tighter, tuition is higher, and
financial aid debt is growing fast. Massively open online courses (MOOCs) are gaining momentum and
destinations such as the Khan Academy continue to amaze in their ability to reach the millions. In this
session, we will challenge the assumptions about education as we know it. What factors should we
consider as we plan for the future of higher education? What resources will we need? Participants will
“tear the walls down” and re-envision the way students will be learning in five, ten, and 20 years.
