Three higher education futures

"Higher Education in 2024: Glimpsing the Future"Today Educause Review Online published my latest article, “Higher Education in 2024: Glimpsing the Future“.  In it are three scenarios for how academia could change over the next decade:

  • Two Cultures, a divide between entirely online teaching and a face-to-face (really hybrid) practice;
  • Renaissance, when we recognize that the past quarter-century has been one of extraordinary cultural creativity;
  • Health Care Nation, wherein the medical sector dominates America’s economy and education system (blogged here).

My main audience is campus IT professionals, and I’d like to hear from you guys.  I’m also interested in what other people think in other academic sectors, and beyond.
