Critical Challenges
  • The role of the academy—and the way we prepare students for their future lives—is changing.
  • New scholarly forms of authoring, publishing, and researching continue to emerge but appropriate metrics for evaluating them increasingly lag behind or fail to appear.
  • Digital media literacy continues its rise in importance as a key 21st century skill, but there is a widening training gap for faculty and teachers.
  • Institutions increasingly focus more narrowly on key goals, as a result of shrinking budgets in the present economic climate.
Key Trends
  • The abundance of resources and relationships induced by open resources and social networks is increasingly challenging us to revisit our roles as educators in sense-making, coaching and credentialing.
  • More and more, people expect to be able to work, learn, study, and connect with their social networks wherever and whenever they want to.
  • Technologies are becoming more decentralized.
  • Students are increasingly seen as collaborators, and there is more cross-campus collaboration.
