5 Higher-Education Trends for 2014

Sophie Quinton from the Atlantic shares what she anticipates will be the 5 top Higher Ed Trends for 2014, and I agree with them in an overarching way.  CBE (Competency Based Education) and PLA (Prior Learning Assessment,) CTE (Career and Technical Education,) Student-Loan Outrage, Data Privacy Concerns, and Teacher Effectiveness.  “A number of education trends made their mark in 2013, from massive open online courses to evaluating colleges based on their graduation rates. The underlying forces that drove change this year aren\’t likely to change anytime soon: declining public funding, changing demographics, advancing technology, and a tough job market.”
