Although there may be disagreement about where higher education is headed, few will disagree that we are in a time of change, a time in which a unique set of challenges have emerged. How should we respond to the impact of open educational resources, to the opportunities of big data and analytics, to the large amounts of venture capital and foundation funding being invested in postsecondary education? What new organizational and leadership models are called for? An open online course, Current/Future State of Higher Education, conducted in fall 2012, evaluated the change pressures that face universities and the opportunities that can help universities prepare for the future state of higher education. In this webinar, the presenters will harvest the key ideas, insights, and discussion points that came to light in the course of the online course, inviting further discussion with the webinar attendees.
