Colleagues,

 I'm curious if any of your institutions are considering the DIY Education movement and incorporating them into your plans?  What role are you playing in this movement?

Keith,

We have not considered this at this time, nor are we currently playing a role.  Online and alternative delivery mechanisms for our own programs are more our focus at this moment.  It’s an evolving conversation as we all know, so asking again in 6-12 months may yield a different answer!

Best, Susan

Hi Keith --

Great question. At  the California College of the Arts we take this pretty seriously and are watching it carefully. While we are not creating MOOCs (a small part of this evolution from my perspective) we are looking more at apprenticeship models, professional/lifelong learning, etc... We have a number of initiatives, including an academic planning initiative, that are touching on this notion (but isn't fully driven by it). More granular bites and student-curated educational opportunities seem a likely avenue (the notion of a traditional FTE probably also needs some tweaking). However, as with us all we have to start testing out new business models to accompany the change-up.

Would love to hear more about what you are thinking about.

Best, Mara

We aren't considering it as an institution, but it is of interest to me in terms of its innovative / disruptive(?) approach to the traditional higher ed model.  Like you, I'd be interested if any institutions are formulating an approach / response to them.

I wasn't aware of this specific effort – I've seen a couple of others.  

Regards,
Mike
