Knowledge, Learning, Community

Daniel Christian offers this quick summary of the goals of this plan (10 page PDF):


  •     Higher education is available on demand.
  •     Learning is not measured by seat time.
  •     Collaboration across institutions facilitates advancement.
  •     College and university campuses are not the sole locations for learning spaces.

Students, Instructors, and Staff

  •     Everything is hybrid.
  •     Student equity is centered in all modalities.
  •     Professional development is ongoing, integrated, and valued.

There is a model there, but the question is, is it the right one? I'm mindful of Phil Hill's recent comments about the Gates Foundation and its links to EDUCAUSE. See also: Rhea Kelly, 16 Actions to Achieve a Hybrid Future.
