#Change11 Purpose of Higher Education, Creativity and Collaboration

What is the purpose of Higher Education? Here in this post of top-ed-tech-trends-of-2011-the-higher-education-bubble by Audrey Watters:

“What about the promise of opportunity and advancement that comes with a college degree?  What about the intellectual demands of university life?  What are students learning?  What should they learn?  What degree programs should schools keep or ax when there are fiscal (and perceptual) constraints?”

I have posted here some views about the purpose and tasks of Higher Education.

University (and Higher Education) is about the creation and dissemination of knowledge.

How to achieve such a vision?

Through creativity and collaboration in the academy.

A wonderful summary.

Your views….
