Moving higher education from keepers to facilitators of knowledge

Does higher ed need to move from being keepers of knowledge to facilitators?

Reported by Education Dive, Maryville University president Mark Lombardi believes that despite the advent of the digital age, our institutions and practices have not evolved enough to best facilitate this transformation.

This would mean further moving away from the constraints of a classroom toward a more personalized learning model, utilizing digital tools to adapt curriculum to how an individual student best learns and processes new ideas and information.

The takeaway? Do our institutional practices need to change now that adaptive technologies now exist to complement and better personalize our curriculum and educational offerings?

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