Resumen del reporte: Hire Education. Mastery, Modularization, and the Workforce Revolution
Clayton Christensen Institute
  • The rising cost of college is forcing students to question the returns on their higher education investments since nearly half of all newly minted bachelor’s degree holders are either unable to find employment or underemployed.
  • As a result, the new wave of online competency-based pathways is very attractive to those students seeking that direct link to the workforce. Therefore, learning and work are becoming inseparable.
  • Is important to acknowledge that students’ priorities are evolving. They are looking for brief, targeted, and affordable lifelong-learning programs with flexible pacing.
  • Competency-based education can fulfill these necessities. These programs have no time-based unit. Learning is fixed, and time is variable; pacing is flexible.
  • According to these report, online competency-based education will inevitably attract more students, as they see the value of a new network that connects them directly with employers.
  • Therefore, universities would have to revolutionize its scheduling around the belief that students learn at different rates—not en masse— and ultimately move away from semesters, quarters, and credit hours.

Informe del evento: 11th Blended Learning Conference and Workshop
Elaborado por: Juan Carlos Enrríquez, Vicerrector de Programas en Línea
  • En enero de 2014, la Universidad de Florida abrió la admisión a una de sus 7 carreras profesionales en formato 100% en línea. Con la previa autorización de su consejo así como también del gobierno del Estado de Florida y con el mandato de alcanzar una población de 24,000 estudiantes en 2023, adicionales a los 50,000 presenciales con los que ya cuenta la universidad, ofreciendo la misma calidad en ambos formatos tanto en línea como presencial.
  • En términos generales, las universidades que asistieron al evento y que han implementado aprendizaje híbrido, reportaron un incremento en la satisfacción de sus estudiantes.
  • Es importante tener a corto plazo la definición e implementación de una estrategia de enseñanza y aprendizaje que incluya los formatos presencial, híbrido y en línea, además del uso  obligado de analíticas del aprendizaje.

Using Predictive Analytics, Adaptive Learning to Transform Higher Education
Government Technology
  • Seven universities: Florida International University, California's Fresno State, Georgia State University, Oregon's Portland State University, Pennsylvania's Temple University, The University of Akron in Ohio, and the University of Illinois at Chicago, are working on a year-long planning project to improve student success thanks to $225,000 grants from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
  • The University of Akron is planning an Institute for Learning and Assessment that will help it figure out how to measure, assess and credential what students learn in a variety of places. With modularized course content, the university could theoretically speed up students' time to graduation and knock off semesters of tuition.
  • Portland State University is honing in on cost-saving flexible degrees for adult learners and clear pathways to success for community college students. Credentialing prior learning, and providing fully online and flipped classes will also save students time and money.
  • Georgia State University is taking a different approach to saving money and graduating students on time with the help of adaptive learning and predictive analytics.
  • Together, these seven universities will begin working on their plans, research and pilots on Aug. 1. And around this time next year, we'll find out what they've discovered.

Time Management: One-Year M.B.A.s
The New York Times
  • Streamline, accelerate, graduate. Educators have been scurrying to figure out how to cut short just about every field of professional study.
  • Graduate business programs were first truncated in Europe in the late 1950s, but one-year M.B.A.s are only starting to catch on in the United States with cost- and time-conscious students.
  • Emory’s Goizueta Business School is offering this program. Proponents say a year is sufficient for students with strong quantitative or analytical skills who are willing to clear their schedules to study. “You get the exact same benefit as the two-year program — the same professors, the community, the G.B.S. network, all the on-campus resources and Goizueta brand — in less time and for less money.”
  • Some schools let students go even faster. The University of Florida’s Hough Graduate School of Business, for example, runs a 10-month M.B.A. for students who graduated with an undergraduate business degree within the previous seven years.

5 Characteristics of an Innovative Organization
Connected Principals
  1. Promotion and modelling of risk-taking: An “innovative environment” will always promote risk-taking, but it does not mean that it is happening. It is only when the leaders of the organization model and take those risks that they talk about, only then it'll happen en masse in schools.
  2. Competitive-Collaboration: Collaboration is not enough. “Competitive-Collaboration” is something that will really push us to the next level. To build a “world-class organization”, you have to look at what is happening outside your organization, not just locally.
  3. Proud of where we are, but know we have a way to go: Many organizations simply take the word “innovation” and used it to replace the word “technology” but innovation and technology are not necessarily synonymous. The notion of “innovative thinking” is one that any organization should focused on.
  4. The focus on sharing: Ideas are not to kept in isolation within a classroom or a school. The more we share, the more others become opening to sharing with us.
  5. Relationships, relationships, relationships: Without a strong focus on relationships first, nothing else happens. Teachers and employees are more apt to go the extra mile for the organization when they know that their leaders care about them personally, then if they didn’t.

Southern Methodist U Debuts Online Grad Program in Data Science
Campus Technology
  • To help meet a growing demand, Dallas' Southern Methodist University will launch a new Master of Science degree in data science in 2015, with courses drawn across its schools of humanities and sciences, engineering, and the arts.
  • Although the program is online only, students will take synchronous classes on a weekly basis on subjects like computer science, statistics, strategic behavior, and data visualization.
  • Lecture materials will still be available on demand through a platform developed for the university by 2U, an online course management provider for higher ed.

Real Faculty Flexibility
Inside Higher Ed
  • Not so long ago, faculty work-life balance equated to one thing: maternity leave.
  • Colleges and universities still have a long way to go, and -despite being producers of new knowledge- lag behind other employers in innovation in career flexibility.
  • About a decade ago, the Sloan Foundation joined with American Council on Education (ACE) to identify and promote existing best practices in faculty flexibility and promote further innovation. The partnership has seen successes.
  • One example of a flexibility policy is the case of the The University System of Maryland. The university used to allow faculty members to take only 15 sick days to care for ailing parents, an increasingly common responsibility. So the system revised the policy, allowing for faculty members to use any paid sick time they’d accrued to care for parents.
  • Flexibility policies benefit not only professors but institutions, due to the hefty costs associated with losing faculty members who think they can’t balance their professional and personal lives.

Stanford medical students learn to operate with Google Glass
  • Like their fellow future doctors down the road in Irvine, medical students at Stanford University will learn surgical methods with a hand from Google Glass.
  • Those studying cardiothoracic techniques are set use Mountain View's high-tech spectacles to stream their views in real-time to instructors with the help of CrowdOptic -- a company that's part of the Glass at Work initiative.
  • With more universities and physicians opting for Glass on the regular, it seems medicine is one place the wearable fits in nicely.
