Reinventing Continuing Higher Education
Walshok, Mary Lindenstein
Continuing Higher Education Review, v76 p38-53 Fall 2012
Re-inventing continuing higher education is about finding ways to be a more central player in a region's civic, cultural, and economic life as well as in the education of individuals for work and citizenship. Continuing higher education will require data gathering, analytical tools, convening authority, interpretive skills, new models of delivery, multiple modes of financing, and new performance metrics. The success of the national economy depends on higher education as a lifelong resource to individuals, organizations and communities as they navigate the incredible technological and global forces shaping regional economies and community life. Professionals in continuing higher education have to reinvent themselves in order to contribute to the reinvention of their regions through: (1) Increasing knowledge of place; (2) Partnering in regional strategies to ensure or enhance regional prosperity; (3) Identifying, building, and renewing the regional talent pool; and (4) Providing access to global ideas and resources essential to regional success.
