International Council for Innovation in Higher Education (Link) * Surprisingly nothing really interesting or innovative on their website in terms of publications. As in ZERO. I’ve included them only because of the possibility their national conference has something to say. Given the speakers listed on the website on the sidebar, I’m a little bit under-impressed.

Quotes on Innovation Disruption in Higher Education:

Rob Preston of Innovation Week, May 14th, 2011

There’s a market-disrupting force at play in higher education that isn’t so prevalent in housing: information technology. Specifically, readily available, much-lower-cost, Web-based alternatives to the standard fare. The Web’s potential to let customers bypass the bricks-and-mortar status quo applies just as much to higher education as it does to book selling or stock trading.

Yes, a big part of the college value proposition is the on-campus experience — the social as well as academic engagement, frat parties as well as chemistry labs. But for those who just want the knowledge, skills, and diploma, it’s only a matter of time before online and other unconventional learning tracks become the norm rather than the exception.
