Future Forward: The Next Twenty Years of Higher Education

Preface by Katie Blot, Blackboard

…You’ll find several themes emerge over and over:
• Our current system is unsustainable and ill-suited for a globally connected world that is constantly changing.
• Colleges and universities will have to change their current business model to continue to thrive, boost revenue and drive enrollment.
• The “sage on the stage” and the “doc in the box” aren’t sustainable; new technologies
will allow faculty to shift their focus on the application of learning rather than the
acquisition of knowledge.
• Data and the ability to transform that data into action will be the new lifeblood of the institution.
• Finally, the heart and soul of any institution are its people. Adopting new technologies is only a small piece of the puzzle; institutions must also work with faculty and staff to change institutional culture.
