(a version of this blog first appeared through my day-job in April 2013)
I was recently asked to present to both Linking London and the Association of Heads of University Administration about trends in higher education provision. In particular I focused on the issues of part-time learners and online delivery (I argue that MOOCs should just be called ‘courses’).
After painting a (pretty bleak) picture of the current context for UK HE, I explore alternatives to the typical Hogwarts university experience, focusing on both part-time and online. I am particularly interested in how both can work together, taking an ‘evolution rather than revolution’ angle.
