Higher education innovation

With world-wide spending on higher education estimated at 5 Trillion USD annually, demographics shifting, and workplaces changing, Margaret Andrews suggests its time to pay more attention to innovation in the current higher education model. With the number of institutions and institutional partnership growing, she says that societal and demographic changes provide an opportunity for thoughtful institutions "to do good and do well by preparing students - throughout their lifecycle - for the challenges and opportunities that await them."

Innovation is breaking out of past patterns to pursue strategies that have not previously been considered. But where is innovation most needed? Andrews' suggests that "universities that adapt to address the whole person, multiple careers, and the entire educational lifecycle, will be the ones that survive and thrive."
