Ignite Session

It’s the End of the University as We Know It (and I feel fine)

Track: Ignite

The next ten years will transform universities in ways that will be frightening for anyone hoping to hold onto the university model that has existed for almost 900 years. It is very likely that, powered by technology, movements such as open educational resources, MOOCs, big data, non-degree programs, badges and alternatives to a university degree will lead to the end of University 1.0. What will be the tipping point that brings about University 2.0?
