The context or current day thinking about educational attainment Beyond 2021 is evolving exponentially.
On April 29, 2021, we hosted a virtual event, “All Brains on Deck: Connecting Higher Education Leaders for Emergent Action” to engage with a diverse set of stakeholders from Higher Education. See some of the results in the graph below.
During the session we asked participants to examine some of the long-held assumptions in higher education and decide if those assumptions needed to continue, stop, or be modified in today’s learning environment.
It appears that there is consensus that long-standing assumptions about who and how we serve learners post high school has Changed!
Buyers of post high school education are thinking in a different context.
Times have changed so significantly in one year that long-standing processes will evolve with the times at a much faster pace than in years past.
The rate of change in rural Idaho may not equal the rate of change in a major metropolitan location such as Philadelphia. Hence, some assumptions such as the age of a typical learner enrolling in a college course may hold accurate for several more years in certain regions
As an industry, our strong suit is to “talk about” the looming changes upon us. What’s Missing is taking “concerted actions” towards new process design of what works.
Key Actions might include:
We still need to learn fast, so we can re-build fast. The first cohort from All Brains on Deck proved to be a community of passionate problem solvers. They were so inspired by thinking and solving problems together that they wanted to scale their findings.
