Here is The Tower and The Cloud
p43: What is, and what should be the university’s commitment to the widespread dissemination of scholarship, particularly that created by its own faculty?
p45. Is the dissemination of scholarship, then a fundamental part of the mission of the university?
p46. It is worthy noting that what seems to be a growing number of faculty are beginning to push for greater openness and of the underlying evidence that supports scholarship.
In the conclusion:
– Institutional responsibility for dissemination of scholarship
– Institutional responsibility for the stewardship of scholarship
I then reflect on this
Digital, network and agents are all co-evolving in the tower and the cloud, which may blur the boundaries in between them in an education and learning ecology.
So what would be the topical interests in future education?
Learning – here I think personalization of learning and education would be a reality when PLE/PLN are more widespread at the time
Do we still have the great walls? They look digital too!
