e-Volution and Adaptation: Doing Higher Education's Business Electronically
Friday, June 18, 2004
Presented at NWACC, June 18th, 2004. The business of higher education is dominantly a craft, evolving from a rather illustrious medieval European tradition. The craft legacy of higher education remains near the center of so-called academic culture, making it difficult for many colleges and universities to fully partake of radical transformation that networks and computing are enabling in other sectors of society and the economy. This talk will explore the historical inter-relationship between higher educations dominant technologies, methods, and markets as a springboard to a discussion of the key areas of focus that will enable higher education to do business electronically in the future.
