Stanford Professor Emeritus of Education Dr. Larry Cuban recently joined us to share his insights on the ways in which technology tends to be adopted by schools, and whether edtech truly enables transformation in education.
MissionU, a heavily-hyped one-year alternative to college, has folded after a single year of operations. We consider the lessons and warning signs from this failure in the alt-college movement.
Probably the only news update we will ever have which includes a story about a hearse. Also: the NYT digs for dirt in college admissions, and rankings of top community and Christian colleges.
How does the world of higher education intersect with the world of employers and their hiring needs? Dr. Sean Gallagher, strategist at Northeastern University, offers insights into the future of university credentials and hiring.
In Sitka, on the coast of southeast Alaska, a young group of visionaries has worked for over three years to launch a new, non-traditional college: Outer Coast. In this interview, members of the core planning team tell us about Outer Coast’s progress and the school’s deliberate, unusual model.

Do we really face a future of unprecedented, accelerated, exponential change which our education systems can’t handle? Part 2 of our analysis offers historical perspective.
