Miller, Michelle D. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2017
Educational technology has fueled a revolution in higher education. Technology-based models such as blended learning, fully online courses, online degree programs, and MOOCs (massive open online courses) are redefining what teaching looks like. They also greatly expand who gets to learn and where and when that learning can take place. The ed tech…

Bass, Randy; Eynon, Bret – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2017
The last five years have been active and noisy ones for the impact of technology and online education on the future of colleges and universities.

Brooks, Beth A. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2017
Despite vigorous lobbying by advocacy groups at the federal and state levels, policies, and practices that are structurally very similar to those being opposed currently by university presidents--health care scorecards, value-based payments, and risk-sharing (i.e., "skin in the game" initiatives) are now very much realities in health…

Adelman, Clifford – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2017
In the traditional higher education sphere, AAC&U's "Essential Learning Outcomes" (ELO 2012) and the Lumina Foundation sponsored "Degree Qualifications Profile" (DQP 2014) both set forth, in different ways, concrete expectations for student learning that include what symbolic translation and its infusions is about. Both…

Sanchez, Elizabeth R. H.; Fulcher, Keston H.; Smith, Kristen L.; Ames, Allison; Hawk, William J. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2017
National events highlight a critical need for refined decision-making skills; tragic ethical shortcomings are all too common in our society (James Madison University, 2013; Smith, Fulcher, & Sanchez, 2015). While employers around the world seek professionals with developed reasoning abilities (Hart Research Associates, 2013; Lau, 2010), higher…

McDade, Sharon A.; Dowdall, Jean A.; Polonio, Narcisa A.; Hamos, Andrea Warren – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2017
As the higher education leadership landscape has become more complicated, particularly through retirements, there is greater difficulty in finding the best candidates for non-presidential positions, which has resulted in more facilitated searches. Candidate recruitment is the most visible work, but equally important is managing, enhancing, and…

Sullivan, Daniel F.; McConnell, Kate Drezek – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2017
First, the good news: due to increased attention from accreditors, the federal and state governments, and the public, it is difficult to find a college or university that does not have at least a nascent institutional process for--if not culture of--assessing student learning. There is also bad news: the existence of an assessment office or…

Frantz, Alan C.; Lawson, Jonathan N. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2017
Although institutions of higher education rarely crumble and fall in the wake of votes of no confidence in their leadership--in presidents, senior administrators, or even governing boards--those expressions of discontent do have meaning. They suggest something awry at the institution, and even the potential to precipitate change. They also present…

Cipriano, Robert E.; Buller, Jeffrey L. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2017
There are two primary means to prevent the abuse of collegiality and transform it into a shield to protect the most vulnerable. First, colleges and universities should follow the examples of their peers by developing clear definitions of what types of behavior constitute collegiality and what types of activity are protected as academic freedom or…

Recent criticism of higher education accreditation has prompted calls for reform and sparked interest in piloting alternative quality assurance methods that better address student learning and employment outcomes.

Carlisle, Brian A. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2017
"In loco parentis" refers to the legal responsibility of some person or organization to perform some of the functions or responsibilities of a parent. Though "in loco parentis" as a legal standard has not actually returned to the law of higher education, societal and especially parental expectations for institutions to act like…

Wienhausen, Gabriele; Elias, Kimberly – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2017
If we want a university and college education to focus on its purpose--learning--then we need to reframe the way we highlight outcomes. Across the nation and abroad, educational leaders have begun the process of helping students define the value and purpose of "their" degrees. Specifically, institutions should help students navigate and…

Finkelstein, Martin J.; Conley, Valerie Martin; Schuster, Jack H. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2017
In the past few decades, especially since the 2008-09 economic downturn, the faculty of American colleges and universities has undergone a far-reaching transformation. Multiple factors, mainly extraneous to the campus itself, are reshaping higher education, and as a result a reprioritizing of the internal allocation of resources is occurring. The…
