VALUE Rubric Development Project. The original VALUE initiative in 2007-09 involved teams of faculty and other educational professionals from over 100 higher education institutions engaged over many months to develop 16 VALUE rubrics for the LEAP Essential Learning Outcomes.

VALUE Rubric Development Project

Each rubric was developed from the most frequently identified characteristics or criteria of learning for each of the 16 learning outcomes. Drafts of each rubric were then tested by faculty with their own students’ work on over 100 college campuses. Download the Rubrics As part of AAC&U’s Liberal Education and America’s Promise (LEAP) initiative, the VALUE rubrics contribute to the national dialogue on assessment of college student learning. Since the initial release of the rubrics, more than thirty-two thousand first time individuals have visited the VALUE website between June 2010 and January 2014.

Project purpose This research aims to navigate through this paradox by moving beyond the technological drivers of change to focus on the anticipated skills needed from both the innovators (technology producers) and industry (technology users) perspectives, with a particular focus on future skills required from Australian VET graduates in the next 5 to 10 years.

This is in line with the call for future research to focus on the link between innovations with more fine-grained occupational characteristics. Industry 4.0: accelerating evolution in employee capability and institutional agility — Academica Forum. The phrase "Industry 4.0" seems to keep popping up in trade publications, higher education news sources and in wider media circles.

Australian Universities at a Crossroads. Four Emergent Higher Education Models. The model that dominates non-profit higher education today is under severe stress, particularly at the less-selective institutions that serve the bulk of American students.

Four Emergent Higher Education Models

Four forces – behavioral, demographic, financial, and political -- have combined to disrupt these institutions’ business practices. First, the student swirl. As fewer students earn their credits at a single institution, and take courses from multiple providers -- from early college high schools, at community colleges, and from various online purveyors – the system of cross-subsidies that institutions relied upon to pay for small upper-division classes erodes. Every indicator suggests that the swirl, and the financial problems it creates, will intensify in the years ahead.

Next are the challenges posed by shifting student demographics. Then, there are the mounting financial pressures as state funding per FTE student declines. A Moonshot Approach to Change in Higher Education: Creativity, Innovation, and the Redesign of Academia. Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin revolutionized the way we access and use information.

And they didn’t stop there. Their bold thinking has led them to explore such “moonshots” as reimagining transportation with self-driving cars and making clean energy accessible to everyone with high-flying wind turbines. According to Google, a project qualifies as a “moonshot” if it meets three criteria: it tackles a huge problem, proposes a radical solution, and involves breakthrough science or technology.1. Disruption of Higher Ed - Dan Sarofian-Butin. Experts on the Future of Work, Jobs Training and Skills. As robots, automation and artificial intelligence perform more tasks and there is massive disruption of jobs, experts say a wider array of education and skills-building programs will be created to meet new demands.

Aheia higher education workforce of the future report. Opportunity through online learning: Improving student access, participation and success in higher education - NCSEHE. Dr Cathy Stone Executive Summary Online learning has a critical place in widening access and participation in education for a diverse range of students, many of whom are from backgrounds which have been historically underrepresented at university.

Posted by: Clint I have written (or am in the process of writing) several chapters on web analytics in education. The following is a list of some of these readings about Web Analytics.

Cadez, I., Heckerman, D., Meek, C., Smyth, P., & White, S. (2003). Harvard Professor Swaps Content For Connections In EdTech Strategy U-Turn. Professor Bharat Anand teaches digital strategy at Harvard Business School, yet when he came to co-developing the HBS digital education business (HBX) he fell headlong into the very trap he tells leaders to avoid. That is to say, the content trap. In The Content Trap (Random House, 2016) Anand shows how the primacy of connections in the digital era—across users, across product and services complements, and across the firm and its specific context—puts three previous holy cows of business strategy to the sword.

Professor Bharat Anand. Online Discussion Boards: Strategies to Ease Instructor Burden and Promote Student Learning. MGH Institute of Health Professions. A well-designed online discussion engages students in an open-ended conversation that promotes deepened understanding of a topic. Design is only part of the process, though. To be truly effective, an online discussion needs to be facilitated by you in a way that encourages conversation and promotes exploration. This section will cover several facilitation strategies and approaches and also provide some general tips on how to effectively facilitate an online discussion, whether as part of a fully online course, a blended course, or a face-to-face course that is web enhanced. About online discussions Online discussions differ from face to face discussions in several ways, as noted in the table below.

Online Education Is Now a Global Market - The Chronicle of Higher Education. Back when colleges first started experimenting with teaching online, pundits mused that competition for college students would one day be global. A student would be able to sit down at a computer and take a course literally from anywhere. It seemed like possibly a crazy thing to predict, considering that these early internet courses involved reading lectures that were typed out, doing some online discussion, and sending in assignments via email.

But the day of global competition for higher education is actually here, and interestingly, some of the world’s most famous universities were the last to get into the act. That’s what struck me this summer when I met Simon Nelson, head of a company called FutureLearn. It’s a spinoff of the British Open University designed to deliver MOOCs, those free massive online courses. After gaining legitimacy, can online higher education replace traditional college? Introduction to Online Discussions. The Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning. Tip3. February 11, 2006/Refreshed July 18 2012. Dick. An instructional design model is the place to start—it is a framework, a tool that guides the structure of a course, that leads the learner to a topic, that removes distractions, provides focus, but still allows a learner to take control.

Effective instructional design also helps an instructor to teach, to guide and support learners, and to promote meaningful and active learning. When an online course is not well-designed, often the student doesn’t know where to start, is not sure where to find resources, how to interact, or how to learn. NCAT Homepage.
