Commission on Creating the Next in Education (CNE)

Office of the Provost, Georgia Tech, May 11, 2018
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This report "is an effort to draw with broad strokes the nature of education that defines the technological research university of the year 2040 and beyond." The core outcome, I think, is in the initiatives section (here are the links, because the page deign obscures them: Whole-Person Education, New Products and Services, Advising for a New Era, A.I. and Personalization, A Distributed Worldwide Presence). Just as interesting (maybe more so) are the seven trends outlined on the initiatives page. There's a comparison of MOOCs to "early twentieth century Chautauqua, the traveling tent shows that moved across the plains of the American Midwest to bring interesting lectures, performances, and novel cultural experiences to families," and the blunt assessment that "most analysts agree that transactional pricing (tuition per credit hour) is not a sustainable model."
