The 21st Century Learner: Strategies To Meet the Challenge. 2000 Master Plan for Higher Education.
Washington State Higher Education Coordinating Board, Olympia.
This year 2000 master plan submitted by the Washington State Higher Education Coordinating Board proposes a realignment of higher education priorities that would place the interests of learners at the center of higher education decision making. The opening sections of the report reaffirm the state's commitment to expanding higher education opportunities. Five goals, with related strategies and recommended actions, are set out in the next sections: (1) to make student learning the yardstick by which accountability is measured; (2) to link K-12 achievement to higher education opportunity; (3) to empower citizens to use a range of learning pathways; (4) to enhance higher education through greater use of e-learning technologies; and (5) to help state institutions meet student needs. The next section discusses the financing required to meet the state's higher education needs and a plan to pay for them. Appended are policy papers that cover: enrollment; nontraditional providers; use of electronic technology; capacity and utilization; accommodating future enrollment through better connections within and across the system; and affordable access. Also appended is an employer survey and a fact sheet about higher education in the state of Washington. (SM)
