Future of Work/Human Capital. THE: Future perfect: what will universities look like in 2030? Recently the media had fun comparing the vision of life in 2015 depicted in the 1989 film Back to the Future Part II with the reality – with the internet being the glaring omission.

THE: Future perfect: what will universities look like in 2030?

But what if we were to try to predict the academy’s future? Could we do a more accurate job? After all, isn’t that one of the tasks of university leaders, given that the future is coming even to those who don’t have a time machine in their sports cars? We asked several distinguished academics to tell us how they imagine higher education will look in 2030.

The responses, however, could hardly be more disparate. Chapter 7: Post-Secondary Education. In this increasingly global marketplace, post-secondary education (PSE) remains a vital asset for Ontario, as over two-thirds of all new jobs in the province are expected to require PSE.

Chapter 7: Post-Secondary Education

The province’s economic growth and competitiveness will need to rely considerably on the ability of the post-secondary system to continue offering high-quality education, while accommodating significant enrolment increases. Ontario’s PSE system has produced impressive results despite significant challenges. In 2009, 63 per cent of Ontario adults had completed some PSE, the highest such rate in the member countries of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). In addition, both universities and colleges combined have absorbed a 36 per cent increase in enrolment since 2002–03. Part of this increase has been the result of demographics, but it has also been fuelled by an Ontario strategy aimed at improving economic competitiveness.

Centre for Public Impact › Welcome to the lab

But it’s not easy. Managing the government machine is all-consuming. The pressure for daily decisions and urgent responses is unremitting, and the fierce media spotlight never wavers. So, how can governments carve out the time and space they need to think, to plan, to innovate? Increasingly they are turning to new units made up of specialist personnel, dedicated to creating new and better solutions for citizens. Blazing an early trail was Denmark’s MindLab, a cross-governmental innovation unit now into its second decade. Wonderful, wonderful…

Higher Ed Big Data Dives Could Be the Answer to Retention Problems

Even though college degrees are the gateway to many high-level jobs, nearly half of students who start college don't end up graduating within six years, according to the US Department of Education. That limits their options in life and hinders enrollment growth at higher education institutions. Helix Education, an agency that gives higher ed institutions more options to boost enrollment efforts, recently released Predictive Student Retention: The Power of Data Coaching, a guide that encourages schools to take a deep dive into Big Data. uToronto receives $15 M for new Centre for Engineering Innovation & Entrepreneurship.
