EdX President, Anant Agarwal predicts the campus of the future. Technology (as usual) with instructors (as usual). The place? Wherever these two and students coincide. But what we cannot forget are two very important issues: what drives higher education (constituency needs) and continuous outcomes assessment (for improvement). Ah! And centering the education on the student (rather than in the professor). Research, innovation and service to the community will only occur if we have the appropriate human resources to continue to develop our economies and well being.
At NEU we are striving to do this… More later as we develop our curricula, facilities and partnerships!
