Disruptive innovation is coming to higher education and this book provides the roadmap. Much of the technology is currently in place and many students are beginning to take advantage. But, the full implementation of what Kevin Carey calls the University of Everywhere will take time.
Imagine being able to learn what you want, when you want at virtually no cost. Imagine getting a quality education without having to go thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt.
That is what the University of Everywhere will entail. No, this isn't just cheer leading for massive open online courses (MOOCs) though they will have a part to play.
No, this is about freeing knowledge and access to knowledge and about life long learning.
Everything Connects is the title of a new book by Faisal Hoque. I think the title is also a great description of how we should approach knowledge and learning. In academia, we tend to think of separate disciplines and often don't see the connections that exist among the various approaches to knowledge. But, whether you're a biologist, psychologist, philosopher, historian, artist, what you do connects with what all the others are doing. I want to examine these connections in some practical and helpful ways for learners and educators.
