1 Facilitating Student Success During an Economic and Technological Revolution Challenges, opportunities, and a few ideas for your consideration August 6, 2012 Selected slide materials from: George Mehaffy, AASCU, and Howard Charney, CISCO systems

2 The Rapidly Changing Higher Education Environment Economics Economics –State funding support decreasing –Cost per credit hour increasing –Private sector involvement increasing Technology and the Information Revolution Technology and the Information Revolution –Amounts of information –Methods of information development –Methods of information dissemination Accountability and assessment Accountability and assessment –Student learning outcomes

3 Smaller state appropriations

4 SE enrollment has increased

5 SE State $/student declined

6 Price to Public Has Increased

7 College cost - risen faster than CPI

8 Unsustainable student debt Student loan debt now greater than credit card debt… Student loan debt now greater than credit card debt… More than $1 trillion this year… More than $1 trillion this year… Average debt for those with loans is now $ 24,000. Average debt for those with loans is now $ 24,000.http://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/12/education/12college.html?_r=2

9 Private sector involvement

10 Private sectors models that challenge status quo 1.The University of Phoenix - 450,000+ students. Faculty: no tenure, Lower salaries, Lower qualifications, No researchFaculty: no tenure, Lower salaries, Lower qualifications, No research 2.DIYU (Do It Yourself University) 3.Peer to Peer University Udacity 5.EdX Coursera - https://www.coursera.org/ https://www.coursera.org/ 7.Straighter line 8.Academic Partnerships – Randy Best and Associates 9.Open Learning Initiative – Carnegie Mellon University 10.Khan Academy 11.iTunes University 12.TED-ED 12.TED-ED (www.ted.com)www.ted.com

11 Rapid expansion in amount of information More data was created during any 48 hour period last year then by all of humanity over the past 30,000 years. By 2020, it will be every hour. Howard Charney, Senior VP Cisco Systems, coinventor of ethernet, July 2012 Howard Charney, Senior VP Cisco Systems, coinventor of ethernet, July 2012

12 Rapid expansion in data volume If you get a person a fish…. The modern information analogy: If you give students current facts, they know for a day If you give students current facts, they know for a day If you teach students how to find, create and manage knowledge, they know for a lifetime If you teach students how to find, create and manage knowledge, they know for a lifetime

13 Three primary information technology drivers: Mobility of devices Mobility of devices Cloud storage Cloud storage Video capabilities Video capabilities Howard Charney, Senior VP Cisco Systems, 2012 Howard Charney, Senior VP Cisco Systems, 2012

14 Info is accessed by mobile devices Source: The Economist

15 Exponential increase in easy & cheap data storage 1980 – 1 Gigabyte cost $200, – 1 Terabyte (1024 GB) cost $100 Howard Charney, Senior VP Cisco Systems, 2012 Howard Charney, Senior VP Cisco Systems, 2012

16 Digital cameras: a lesson in technology and the information revolution

17 23 seconds to display the first digital photographs

18 Steve Sasson – inventor of the digital camera 1972 – BS; MS; EE; Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute 1975 Eastman Kodak Company, assigned to build an electronic camera 1978 – granted patent for digital camera 2001 – first public disclosure of project

19 Eastman Kodak company 1975 – developed the digital camera 1976 – 90% market share of photographic film sales in the US 2001 – first public disclosure of digital photography project 2012 – filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy

20 Innovative disruption Disruption comes from cheaper and simpler technologies that are initially of lower quality. Over time, the simpler and cheaper technology improves to a point that it displaces the incumbent. Kodak is an example of a disrupted company. Christiansen argues that technology, and especially the on-line course, is the disruption enabler in higher education.

21 Implications for faculty at Southeast 1. Facilitator of student learning vs lecturer 2. Different course delivery models 3. Changes in class configurations 4. Increased collaboration and partnership 5. Increased flexibility in course offerings 6. Increased need for measured student learning and accountability

22 Changes in Course Models Cottage industry model – traditional model: everyone designs his or her own course in isolation Cottage industry model – traditional model: everyone designs his or her own course in isolation Courses offered collaboratively Courses offered collaboratively Private/public partnership model – universities partner with private sector entities to jointly offer programming. Private/public partnership model – universities partner with private sector entities to jointly offer programming. Purchased courses?– Straighter Line: $99 per course student Purchased courses?– Straighter Line: $99 per course student Course Redesign (Flipped courses) Course Redesign (Flipped courses) Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) – OLI, EdX, etc Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) – OLI, EdX, etc Blended courses Blended courses
