Design a “future university”
That was the challenge for a final project in a seminar class on the future of higher education led by Bryan Alexander in the Learning, Design, and Technology Masters program at Georgetown University.
I tried to take a giant step back when framing my proposal. I needed to consider the functions of a university in terms of the classes and services it provides to students but also in terms of its function within society and the economy. My design is both a serious attempt to propose a radically new model for higher education while at the same time offering a theory for how to consider the problem.
I welcome feedback on the model I proposed.
