More Institutions are Outsourcing their Gen Ed Curriculum Design to…Google

More institutions are outsourcing their gen ends to…Google.

Reported by Inside Higher Ed, students at eight institutions this semester can enroll in introductory computer science and data science courses, developed by Google.

Students are excited to learn Google-specific curriculum. And employers (at least Google) will likely be excited to employ students who have taken this Google-certified curriculum.

The takeaway? Could and should our curriculum become more employer-guided or even contributed? Would that not only lessen the burden on our faculty, but increase the market viability of our students as well?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
