Predicting the future is not easy, but this is really not about predicting the future—it is about attending to the current reality:

 We need a whole generation with the capacities for creative thinking and for thriving in a collaborative culture….People are not born with inherent innovation skills, but they can learn them. They can acquire the skills to work in diverse, multidisciplinary team, learn adaptability and leadership.

  • Southern Blend by Carl Straumsheim - Inside Higher Ed
    After three years of experimenting with blended learning, leaders of the Associated Colleges of the South feel a movement is growing, but they aren't sure if the push will last. The association, which consists of 16 liberal arts institutions across 12 Southern states, made blended learning one of its formal programs in the fall of 2011. With support from the Andrew W. Mellon, Robert W. Woodruff and Teagle Foundations, the program has awarded more than $200,000 over the last three years to fund 42 experiments that include flipped classrooms, digital humanities and content from massive open online courses. The association’s goal, as outlined in a set of upcoming reports, is to create a different kind of model for blended learning -- defined as “computer-mediated instruction that is combined with the interpersonal and interactive pedagogy that distinguishes the ACS institutions.”
