DIY higher education

UNBundling higher education

Universities must change the way they operate to survive and remain relevant.

This argument rests on premises2

Premise! 1

web 2.0 represent a REVOLUTION (a tipping point for radical organizational change) social media &

Premise! 2

Universities are inherently MODERNIST institutions and are ill-equipped to respond to this revolution.

Universities must change the way they operate to survive and remain relevant. Social media and Web 2.0 technologies have pushed us to a tipping point for massive organizational change. Universities are ill-equipped and at an organizational disadvantage to respond to this change. 1 2 THEREFORE

In explaining this I’d like to use 3metaphors have for what universities lost

WE’VE LOST THE SHELF BLACKBOARD BULLETIN BOARD

The Shelf

books used to be tied up in Knowledge

and the university was the sole provider and keeper of this knowledge

Going digital changed this. ! The Web changed this.

1996

Yahoo, faced with the possibility that they could organize things with no physical constraints, added the shelf back. - Clay Shirky

2013

We no longer need a curator. We can search for anything and everything.

The university lost control of The Shelf Being the exclusive source for knowledge

WE’VE LOST THE SHELF BLACKBOARD BULLETIN BOARD

The Bulletin Board

Previously, the university could control communication through the limited means available. It was a funnel...

it could control its message.

In the digital age! this control is no longer possible.

Communication methods are ubiquitous and ever-present. Social media has exploded.!

SIGNAL to NOISE There is a higher

The university lost control of The Bulletin Board The ability to communicate to a captive audience

WE’VE LOST THE SHELF BLACKBOARD BULLETIN BOARD

The Blackboard

With the blackboard... The learning is up here!

Lectures are common

Structures divide the student and the teacher

Social media breaks down these barriers

Diverse learners and! diverse learning styles are welcome...! and celebrated

learning becomes a co-constructed experience.

The university lost control of The Blackboard The ability to rely on old methods of instruction and ignore multiple learning styles.

WE’VE LOST THE SHELF BLACKBOARD BULLETIN BOARD

So what is the way forward! for the university?

technology may be part of the solution,! but not the whole of the solution…

what can be replicated easily…! and what cannot…

I believe in order to remain relevant universities must...

Double down on student development
