Higher Education in the Digital Age

By William G. Bowen

Two of the main obvious and demanding traits in larger schooling this present day are its exploding charges and the fast enlargement of on-line studying. may the expansion in on-line classes gradual the emerging price of school and support resolve the main issue of affordability? during this brief and incisive booklet, William G. Bowen, one of many optimum specialists at the intersection of schooling and economics, explains why, regardless of his previous skepticism, he now believes expertise has the capability to assist rein in expenses with out negatively affecting scholar studying. As a former president of Princeton collage, an economist, and writer of many books on schooling, together with the acclaimed bestseller The form of the River, Bowen speaks with distinct services at the subject.

Surveying the dizzying array of latest technology-based instructing and studying projects, together with the hugely publicized emergence of "massive open on-line classes" (MOOCs), Bowen argues that such applied sciences may possibly rework conventional larger education--allowing it ultimately to scale back emerging charges via expanding productiveness, whereas conserving caliber and maintaining center values. however the demanding situations, that are organizational and philosophical up to technological, are daunting. They comprise offering difficult proof of no matter if on-line schooling is reasonable in quite a few settings, rethinking the governance and decision-making buildings of upper schooling, and constructing customizable technological structures. but, Bowen is still positive that the aptitude payoff is great.

Based at the 2012 Tanner Lectures on Human Values, added at Stanford college, the publication comprises responses from Stanford president John Hennessy, Harvard college psychologist Howard Gardner, Columbia collage literature professor Andrew Delbanco, and Coursera cofounder Daphne Koller.
