EDUCAUSE Review, v48 n5 p32-34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48, 50, 52 Sept-Oct 2013
Advances in technology and in knowledge about expertise, learning, and assessment have the potential to reshape higher education, as well as the many other forms of learning past matriculation from high school. In the next decade, higher education, military and workplace training, and professional development should all transform to exploit the opportunities of a new era, leveraging models based on emerging technologies that can make learning more efficient and possibly improve student support, all at lower cost for a broader range of learners. That said, potential risks must be managed, including the disruption of established delivery economics in current learning institutions, the variable quality of the learning outcomes these new models offer today, and the technical and conceptual challenges of better understanding how to design, develop, and implement innovative capabilities in ways that reliably deliver on their promise. This article is based on a report written by the fifteen participants in a Computing Research Association workshop sponsored by the National Science Foundation and held at MIT in January 2013.
