The WebStudy Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization focused on creating a positive social impact as higher education journeys through it’s digital transformation.
Enormous social progress has been made in educational equality to attain economic mobility across diverse groups – yet – the lifetime earnings gap between those who complete college and those who do not – may widen, as costs rise.
Digital transformation in higher education demands more than incrementally improving what worked in the past.
The WebStudy Foundation built a powerhouse team of organizational development experts to support all stakeholders to expand the circle of participation in collective thinking, performing and producing effective change. An academic digital transformation using educational technology can only be effective – if it improves what we know works well in student achievement with less effort.
The higher education community has the capability to harness the ‘wisdom of the crowds’ within their campus borders and beyond their current vantage point to co-create true innovation.
Between now and 2040, early majority adopters will convergence pedagogy and technology to deliver the most effective transfer of new knowledge. Numerous thought leaders have dedicated two decades to researching how institutions might proactively chart their destiny, rather than reactively be disrupted by software implementations and ‘stakeholder vacuum’ decision making.
Creating a New Path Forward is a shared challenge by cross-functional teams, regions and the world. Together, we’ll uncomplicate a complex system to achieve gains in student achievement.
