Course Description

This online collaboration is open to anyone who attends, works in or works with higher education in the United States. The “Explore the Beyond” online collaboration will use crowd-sourcing and future scenarios developed in the “Invent the Beyond” course (delivered Sept-Nov 2014) to explore and describe the factors critical to the success of student, faculty and postsecondary institutions in 2030. Through successive interactive and discursive sessions participants will identify and quantify the critical success factors and potential new business models in play for higher education stakeholders. The “Explore the Beyond” sessions will see participants establishing and exploring how three stakeholder groups – students, faculty and institutions – would fare, what factors would be critical to the success of those communities, in the previously identified scenarios. The final session will recap and consolidate the learnings and implications of the complete process to Invent the Beyond resulting in a set of critical success factors and a framework for informing institutions and individuals as they build their future plans.
