I was delighted to find that James Morrison was able to connect with Zaid Ali Alsagoff and share some learning experiences. This post is Alsagoff's reactions to Morrison's visit, with descriptions and clips of his talk on the future of higher education. "Higher education is in a major transition period that will fundamentally change the way colleges and universities will conduct their business in the coming decades. Although change in social institutions is seldom rapid, the combined forces of demography, globalization, economic restructuring, and information technology are forcing colleges to reconceptualize their markets, organizational structures, and pedagogical practices."
