Essay predicting that campuses will be completely digital in 3 years | Inside Higher Ed

President of McGraw-Hill:


"... I’m willing to put my stake in the ground.


As I see it, the publishing industry needs to do all it can to ensure that within 36 months, higher education in the U.S. will be completely digital. I’m not talking about a slight or even gradual increase in e-book adoptions or the use of adaptive learning. I’m talking about a total transition from a reliance on print textbooks to a full embrace of digital content and learning systems. Aside from the college library, you hopefully won’t be able to find a printed textbook on a college campus in three years. And if you are, we should all be disappointed."

At UNT-Dallas, Consultants Propose a Reinvention - Administration - The Chronicle of Higher Education

And faculty are wary:


"Bain projects that the model would allow UNT-Dallas to offer an education for less than $6,000 a year well into the future­—a bit less than the $6,600 students pay now. (For students who qualify for Pell Grants, the out-of-pocket expense would be about $2,000 a year.) Bain says that by adopting the new model and increasing enrollment, the university could operate by 2022 at a cost of $30,000 per graduate. Without a change in course, Bain says, that cost would be about $100,000 per graduate."

Essay on why some colleges can't change | Inside Higher Ed

"Ultimately, meaningful organizational change requires courage because there are almost always individuals and groups with vested interests that actively and often vocally oppose change. Members of various interest groups have worked, often for years, to maximize, to the extent possible, the fit of their interests to the way the organization functions; they may view any change as jeopardizing the fit or benefits they have worked so hard to attain. Moreover, other institutions may be doing what your institution has been doing and it is always easier to follow the crowd than to defy it. In the end, meaningful organizational change entails risk and requires leaders who are willing and able to persuade enough stakeholders that any threats to their interests are more than compensated for by the benefits to be obtained through meaningful and potentially beneficial change."


Robert J. Sternberg is provost, senior vice president, and Regents Professor of Psychology and Education at Oklahoma State University. He is a past president of the American Psychological Association, treasurer of the Association of American Colleges and Universities and president of the Federation of Associations in Behavioral and Brain Sciences.

The Game Has Changed (EDUCAUSE Review) | Must-Read

A must-read by Charles Henry and Brad Wheeler in EDUCAUSE Review. The list of 8 things the academy can do to rethink and relabance sound like a list of integrated planning tenets.


  1. "Stop thinking about projects as isolated, local activities. Rather, every major project is an element of a much wider environment of activity that needs to be federated at some level as a functional facet of the whole."
  2. "Promote large-scale efforts that bring together multiple elements of higher education (libraries, IT departments, scholarly societies, administration, research centers, publishers) and eschew proposals that rely on a single community or profession to solve a major challenge."
