Title:College rewired: Innovative approaches help higher education connect to productivity
Source:http://www.luminafoundation.org/publications/Fo...
Date:2012
Organization:Lumina Foundation for Education
Short Description:We must make higher education more productive, so that it can provide many more students with rigorous, relevant, high-quality learning — but without increasing costs. This issue of Lumina Foundation Focus takes you to a few places that have made that connection — institutions that are making real strides in the effort to improve college productivity by creating innovative new models for serving their students.
Annotation:Increasing numbers of economists, labor experts and employers agree that, for the nation to be economically secure and socially stable in coming decades, our higher education system must be a more efficient engine for human capital development. We must find ways to make college-level learning the norm for all Americans, particularly the growing numbers of 21st century students who constitute our future as a nation: students of color, working adults, first-generation students and low-income students. In short, we must make higher education more productive, so that it can provide many more students with rigorous, relevant, high-quality learning — but without increasing costs. This issue of Lumina Foundation Focus takes you to a few places that have made that connection — institutions that are making real strides in the effort to improve college productivity by creating innovative new models for serving their students.
