How to Use This New Scanning Resource

This resource is a pilot project using Web functionality that is evolving even as we apply it. Expect changes.

 

With it, we hope to share more of our content stream in a way that is member-friendly. You can comment, suggest we use a link, or write your own mini-blog post (quite intuitive and automated). Plus, of course, you can use the control panels at the bottom of each content box to share a resource you like.

 

We have very flexible, customizable volunteer opportunities related to this tool. Let us know if you are interested at socmed@scup.org. Thanks. Oh, and let us know if you think that we should cover a topical area you do not see represented here.

Systemic Changes in Higher Education | in education

Systemic Changes in Higher Education | in education | SCUP Links | Scoop.it

Abstract: A power shift is occurring in higher education, driven by two trends: (a) the increased freedom of learners to access, create, and re-create content; and (b) the opportunity for learners to interact with each other outside of a mediating agent. Information access and dialogue, previously under control of the educator, can now be readily fulfilled by learners. When the essential mandate of universities is buffeted by global, social/political, technological, and educational change pressures, questions about the future of universities become prominent. The integrated university faces numerous challenges, including a decoupling of research and teaching functions. Do we still need physical classrooms? Are courses effective when information is fluid across disciplines and subject to continual changes? What value does a university provide society when educational resources and processes are open and transparent?
