How are education strategies developed and measured in Higher Education?
I think education (HE in particular) is now being considered as a business, where a business model has been used to achieve the vision of education and strategies developed based on a Balanced Score Card approach. Here education success would be measured based on the achievement of goals and vision set forth in the strategic plan, and the evaluation and review of the plan.
Here is the Balanced Scorecard which is typically used in developing the strategic plan:
Does it look familiar to you?
Customers of education could include the students, and all those who are “purchasing” education as products. This is especially the case in privately owned education institution, or in higher and vocational education.
Another measure of education is the results from the test and examination, where students’ achievement would be an important measure of success in education.
Would this sort of framework be applicable to MOOC? Why/Why not?
