JeffThis is the personal site of Jeff Lebow. I am not a very active 'blogger', but do spend a lot of time online building Worldbridges communities, teaching at BUFS, and LearningCall.  Currently, my 'bridge building' is focused on keeping Koreabridge chugging along and bringing Englishbridges back to life, but I also spend time webcasting at EdTechTalk, talking about webcasting at the Academy, MOOC'ing, and lately hanging out a lot with Google+.  Most of my content will posted elsewhere in the Worldbridgosphere, but I will sometimes post significant webcasts and project updates here.

The 21st Century University - Valerie Irvine and Jillianne Code for Change11

 
 
Change11 - Week#16 
Valerie Irvine and Jillianne Code - The 21st Century University
January 11, 2012

Week#16 Overview: http://mooc.wikispaces.com/Irvine+%26+Code

Valerie & Jillianne discuss issues facing brick and mortar universities in the current global context of post-secondary education. The economic situation facing most universities is one of diminishing funds through cutbacks, increasing competition both locally and globally as a result of the increasing number of post-secondary institutions (specifically colleges and online universities) and the growing prevalence of online programs. We are also dealing with a natural demographic phenomenon whereby the number of people aged 18-22 are smaller than in previous boom eras. What can brick and mortar Universities do to adapt, innovate, remain both competitive and relevant in this situation? In essence, become part of the 21st century? We will discuss the issues universities face and how they can meet the demands of students for flexibility. They also  propose a solution which is being piloted today at the University of Victoria through a new delivery method we have termed multi-access learning. Through modification of our registration system, we will be able to let the learner choose the delivery method they want for course enrollment.
