5 Bold Predictions For The Future Of Higher Education | Co.Exist | ideas + impact.
A quick but interesting read. I’m really interested in this “pivot” happening right now in higher ed. I think, a couple decades from now, we’ll look back and realize we were going through a sea change in how higher education is funded and designed.
Big question, to me, is whether these systemic changes will end up benefiting students or if it will turn education into something even more classist than it is now, where people with money get to sit in actual classrooms with real human teachers while everyone else gets stuck in online courses.
