Summary of an address by Carol Geary Schneider, longtime leader of the Association of American Colleges and Universities. She points to the ways education will have to change in the future, much of it motivated by the internet and MOOCs. "We have a radical idea that the aims of education ought to be the outcomes of education,” she says, adding that “we shouldn’t use the digital revolution to continue outdated forms of higher education, like the lecture.” Also: “Students’ educational experience needs to be designed so that it adds up,” she says, with an end product that is “integrative and applied.”
