APM Group's curator insight, September 11, 2014 7:52 AM

Education in India despite of high quality is always questioned for its practicability. Most of the basic schools are yet to be modernizing in their approach. The basic thing that I found in Indian school is the absenteeism of the latest trends like facility management, housekeeping services and others.

Trend— Labor market analytics informing the education and workforce conversation

Trend— Labor market analytics informing the education and workforce conversation | SCUP Links | Scoop.it

Research, information and detailed awareness into skill gaps and labor market demand—could be useful to know.


Sigelman adds a deep insight into the dialogue and the inextricable link between higher education and the economic well-being of New England. His firm, Burning Glass, provides detailed, real-time information about what’s happening in the labor market to educators, policymakers, students and job seekers. It generates this intelligence by collecting and “reading”—using sophisticated text-mining algorithms—tens of millions of online job postings. As a result, the firm’s data support the analysis of emerging skills and the changing job landscape.

Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s insight:

Another addition to this great series of interviews, New Directions for Higher Education, from the New England Journal of Higher Education.

No One Likes It? But Is It Different? Five Takes On the Obama Admin’s New Rules for For-Profits | SCUP Links | Scoop.it

Probably the most important information for higher education planners this week was the Obama administration’s new set of rules for career education programs. Aimed, as Michael Stratford puts it, “mostly at for-profit colleges [it] is, in some ways, just the latest flashpoint in a years-long battle with the controversial sector of higher education. Or is it? “[I]n a sign of how contentious and charged the coming months may be, the only thing that all sides agreed on Friday was just how much they didn’t like the administration’s proposal.”

Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s insight:

Here are five takes on the proposed rules:

Trend— Measuring the costs to colleges of regulatory compliance

Trend— Measuring the costs to colleges of regulatory compliance | SCUP Links | Scoop.it

"Many people in higher education complain about the increasing burdens of regulation, with some insisting that it has driven administrative bloat, but the exact toll on colleges remains a mystery. That’s because very few colleges have bothered to measure the cost of compliance in dollars or employee time, because that task is too complicated or too costly in itself.

But it may be time that some colleges tried. "

Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s insight:

Hmm. 


Hartwick College "employees spend about 7,200 hours on compliance reporting, at a cost of about $300,000 to the institution. Just over 100 Hartwick employees and six Aramark contractors working for Hartwick have some role in compliance tasks. In some cases.


'Frankly, some of it we’re doing to ourselves,' president Drugovich said. 'The largest portion of labor hours is not spent on federal regulation, but it is spent on NCAA.'”
