Innovation in Education: Where is the 21st Century University?

by

On the heals of a highly successful eduTweetup Boston, Emerson‘s Mike Petroff joins the program to discuss innovation in education. Spotlighting many of the same examples showcased at the Friday tweetup event, the show looks at real world examples of success in the market today. From social media’s role in student success, to opencourseware and new in-class educational models, the show discusses what works, why and how to scale it.

    Nice to see you people out on the leading edge. Two random thoughts with respect to the idea presented of people just getting the knowledge free online and skip the credential: (1) when it comes to getting jobs, the credential is more important than the knowledge and (2) people don’t learn by reading and listening to presentations (the format of free online university content), they learn by refining their understanding though application of new concepts to problem solving, case studies, writing, calculating….in other words, course assignment and assessments which are not online for free.
