Bubble Wrap: Higher Education and the Value Gap | New England Journal of Higher Education

There is a growing recognition that something is not quite right—that the focus on a college degree may in fact be an outmoded concept—not serving the needs of all citizens in a knowledge-based economy. There are many roads to an educated life, and higher education institutions may be the perfect incubators for non-degree credentialing and expanded learning options.

Now there's a liminally optimistic and intriguing thought from Philip DiSalvio, dean of University College at University of Massachusetts Boston, in a New England Journal of Higher Education article titled, Bubble Wrap: Higher Education and the Value Gap.

We're going to ask DiSalvio to share some thoughts with SCUPers this winter in the Planning for Higher Ed 'Change-Disruption' Mojo. (If you know him and can facilitate that, please let me know.) As noted in the article's blurb, "the the focus on a college degree may in fact be an outmoded concept, not serving the needs of all citizens in a knowledge-based economy."
