In The End of University as we know it, Nathan writes:
The future looks like this: Access to college-level education will be free for everyone; the residential college campus will become largely obsolete; tens of thousands of professors will lose their jobs; the bachelor’s degree will become increasingly irrelevant; and ten years from now Harvard will enroll ten million students.
Will that be overly pessimistic?
If tens of thousands of professors are losing their jobs, would that be the serious consequence? Are the bachelor’s degree still relevant? What sort of courses and curriculum should be offered by the institutions instead?
Good to have a conversation about this trend.
What happen to the university of the future? Let’s explore with more conversation.
